We are at the southern end of the island of Viti Levu, the largest island in Fiji's archipelago of more than 300 islands, and home to about 60% of the country's population.
Along with tourism, major industries include sugar cane production and a thriving dairy industry.
Yesterday we enjoyed a full-day tour centered around a long-boat ride up and down a section of the Navua River.
We traversed some very mild "rapids" in our three-boat flotilla, swam briefly in chilly water near a picturesque waterfall, clambered onto a bamboo raft for a short float around a couple of bends, and finish up at a local village with a Lovo-based lunch, interesting demonstrations of various crafts, and some charming entertainment.
Another great day in this friendliest of countries...
