On the Road - Pit Stop

I had a lot of fun driving this big right-hand-drive, stick-shift truck across Fiji's largest island, Viti Levu from Nadi to Suva. Pacific Harbour is a good place to stop for refreshment. On our first run through Pacific Harbour we stopped at Deuba, a not-very-touristy mini-mart advertising Pizza, Takeaway and Fast Food.

Around half the population of Fiji is Indo-Fijian and so curry is now as common-place as more traditional Fijian Food.

Lamb Curry | Roti | Rice | Dhal | FJD$4.50
Lamb Sausage | Chips | FJD$2.50
A Nice Cup of Tea | FJD$0.70
Total | FJD$7.70
That's the equivalent to $4.50 US. Not bad for a spicy little lunch.

Previously on Fiji Fridays:
Fresh Coconut Juice | Catch of the Day | The Sweetest Girl | Exotic Fruits | Forbidden Food | Nature's Communal Oven | Lovo | Nama Sea Grapes |
