Shopping in the South Seas

The Largest Retail Produce Market in the Pacific...

...can be found in the Capital City of which country?

Work that one out and you'll know where Fred and I just spent a blissful two and a half weeks on vacation. Much more about our food experiences in this wonderful country to come.

    Welcome back, Sam! I don't know the answer, but I did want to say hey anyway.

    Oh, thank god. I'd been mainlining Epicurious in your absence, and just couldn't get that high I needed.
    No idea what country. (Deep envy, though.)

    I don't have a clue what country you were in. I just wanted to say WELCOME BACK and YOU'VE BEEN SORELY MISSED!

    Thought maybe you had found there was sooooo much free time to be had sans blog, that you had decided not to come back. *sniff* (And to add insult to injury, were leaving that last purply photo as your final post. . . : )

    Welcome back, Sam! We've missed you. Let me guess. Do I see lots of blue lagoons, perhaps? And water in square-ish plastic bottles?

    Hey there Sam! Nice to see you home safe and sound.

    Yeah, you're off the hook ;-)

    Were you in Fiji? Suva?

    I am glad you're back.

    I'll add my welcome back to the chorus. (And I won't guess, since I know where you were...) Hope you two had a blissful time and are brown as little bears.

    welcome welcome back!!!

    Thank goodness. I've been gearing up to make a vegan meal, just in your honor. But every time I check back, I'd just see that last vegan-challenge post. I was starting to want to eat chunks of meat as a protest.

    I'm not going to guess. I'll just let you tell me.

    Fiji of course, can't wait for the stories! XO K

    Yay! Sam's back!

    we miss you.

    no more heavy sighs.

    we should see you 'fore you disappear into the work again.

    Japan?

    Or Hong Kong, maybe?

    Welcome back!

    Very jealous...hope all that exotic tropicalness was enough to recharge you and Fred. Welcome back!

    Hmmm, you've deliberately written 'South Seas', so it has to be Polynesia somewhere. Tahiti? I think you've either been to Tahiti or New Caledonia or Vanuatu...
    Unless it was Micronesia/Melanisia and you were in Guam?

    Thank you so much everyone for all the heartfelt welcome-backs and congratulations to all those who guessed correctly. The answer was Fiji and the market (more pictures to come) was indeed in Suva.

    Sorry I haven't had time to answer you all more personally - my internet access has been down for more than half of the weekend and it was a struggle just to get today's post out. More from Fiji to come - I promise you.

    love sam x

    Lol! Ok, Fiji. No wonder I didn't guess; Aussies never think of Fiji as being in the South Seas like the French islands. It's just one of those islands near us in the Pacific!

    Niki - I wasn't sure - I had the same thought as you - but then I did some research on the net & concluded anything south of the equator was eligible to be labeled South Seas.
