5am : Roosters – Wake up call round 2

10:00am – 1:30pm : Walk down the to District Officer’s office to work on personal projects

The rest of the day is spent doing any of the following for any amount of time: Teaching kindi, hanging out with the ladies,  playing with the children, in town, catching kai (mussels) in the river, getting ota off the side of the road, cleaning the house, writing in my journal, blogging, cooking,  gardening, playing with or walking Zena (my dog), watching movies, etc.


Saturday: Weekends are normally for cleaning, relaxing, hanging out with friends, and preparing for Sunday (day of rest). On a typical Saturday, I normally clean my house, do laundry that accumulated over the week, go to the fruit/vegetable market in Nasouri (30 min away), catch up on work, and watch movies. However, it differs depending on activities or the events going on in town. Sometimes I go into town, Nasouri is a 30 minute bus ride, or the city, Suva is an 1 1/2 bus ride. If a close friend or family of mine has a function out of town, I often go with them and spend the weekend.

Sunday (Day of Rest): On Sundays, it is God’s Day, and there is no work to be done. All work and food gathering is to be completed the day before.
