As today marks 2 months since I arrived in Fiji it seems fitting to finally give a bit of a tour of the house that we are staying in.
By Fijian standards our place is quite luxurious especially considering it has electricity, water and is made out of cement. Compared to housing in the villages this place is palatial.
Upstairs has a bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, living and dining rooms. This space alone is bigger than our entire apartment in Darwin was! As the place was unfurnished when we moved in it is still quite bare. Given the amount of culling (it still wasn’t enough) and the numerous things we still have in storage in Australia I am determined to remain as minimalist as possible from now on.
Downstairs has a little enclosed courtyard area with a maids sleeping quarters, washing line and laundry tubs. Inside are the remaining two bedrooms (one with a balcony) and another bathroom.
We are so fortunate to not only be living in Fiji but to be living in such a nice house with a gorgeous view that makes every day so relaxing.
Also, since it’s two month since my arrival and we picked up Nero we attempted our first family photo tonight. Can’t say it was a raging success but we certainly laughed while attempting to get the dog to smile like a human.
