Fiji Holiday - Viti Levu Island

We drank coconut milk and learned that coconut tastes best from green coconuts. They are all related in this village in some way. Their last name is Denford. This is surprisingly English because they are all decended from an Englishman abandoned on an island in the 1800s by the captain of the boat he was travelling on. He managed to get to the mainland and befriended the King at that time. He was obviously useful in some way because they were canibals in those days so he was lucky he wasn't eaten. Instead, he was given a woman and some land by the King which resulted in this village. He was the grandfather 7 times removed of our tour leader (in the blue sulu). His cousin is spiking the coconut and his uncle is chopping off the top of another.
