East Indians in Fiji

Over one third of the population of Fiji is made up of East Indians.  Originally they were brought over as indentured laborers to work in the sugar cane fields.  In some places we traveled we saw so many Indians and Indian stores that we could have been in India.

Oh boy, that is a very busy looking building. I think I would be more comfortable in the grass shack on Castaway Island. Great photos all.

Wow don't you just love those colors. I would love to watch the craftsman putting some of those together and painting them. Wow!
