Luckily we didn't have to endure the overnight ferry back to Savusavu, instead we flew to Lambasa on the north of Vanua Levu and then took a taxi for the 2hr drive across the island, much more civilised.  Fortunately I didn't need an operation, but it took another 2 weeks before I was able to walk again, not a happy bunny. . . 
To cheer me up on my birthday, Bob made the best chocolate cake in Fiji and hired a car for the day , brilliant!

Bob has many talents. . .. 

The Chinese haven't rebuilt this road yet. .. 

Where did you get the chocolate from then?

Most villages have a furnace to dry their coconuts

They also have a few pigs!

Our picnic (or rather the chocolate cake) attracts a bit of interest

These lovely lads sung Happy Birthday to me by the side of the road! (I shared the cake)

No saddles, no bridles, no hats, no worries !
