Somehow it happened. The word got out. Our host Meri heard that our 24th anniversary was coming up during our stay at the village. Now, Cindi and I usually take our anniversaries pretty casually....a good dinner, an overpriced bottle of red, and some nice sentiments expressed is usually about the extent. Not the case in Fulaga!!!
Meri hinted that there might be a bit of a celebration in the works. "Oh, Meri, you don't have to go to any trouble.....really.....ummmmm, how many people are coming, just us and you and Jon-e???" With a sly giggle, Meri replied, "well, ummmmm.....I think the whole village"!!!!! Yikes!

Finally by 10 the kava ran out, and reluctantly we made our 20 minute hike back to the water, and the dinghy ride back to Bravo.
Wow, truly an anniversary we'll always remember!!! Special thanks to Meri, Jon-e, and all who helped put on the bash!!! Vinaka vaka levu!
