Maccas is good for icecream in Nadi
Maccas food in Nadi, Fiji, is boring compared with the delicious local curries and Fijian foods on offer, but it is good for icecream, so one time Peceli, and Raqi (a worker at the Hexagon who comes from Mali Island) and I stopped off for icecream. I was interested to see that they have lots of art-work on the walls which gave the place a few points up in my estimation. We preferred to eat with relatives of course, but in Nadi town or Lautoka we found some good cafes for generous meals at about $5 or $6F.
Introducing Peceli and Wendy. Babasiga (pronounced bambasinga) is the dry land of Macuata in northern Fiji - our place in the sun in Fiji. The town is Labasa and our village is Vatuadova and the beach is Nukutatava. We are part of Wailevu Fijian tribe with relatives in Mali Island and Naseakula village. Peceli was born in Labasa and Wendy is an Australian and today live in Geelong, Australia.
