Isa, our lovely niece, Rinieta, passed away this week in Suva, and her funeral will be tomorrow at Vatuadova village near Labasa. She has been a great worker for women in Fiji and a much loved member of our familiy mataqali.
Two photos taken about 1972 when Rinieta lived with us at Nukutatava Beach. In the family picture she is the girl in the middle of the photo.
Babasiga (pronounced bambasinga) is the dry land of Macuata in northern Fiji - our place in the sun in Fiji. Peceli is from Fiji from the village is Vatuadova and the beach is Nukutatava. Peceli Ratawa passed away on 27th December 2015 so this is Wendy's blog now. Wendy is an Australian and today live in Geelong, Australia.
