Local Fiji

I’ve traveled to places where they’ve never seen an American before. That’s not too hard of a challenge. But, as far as I know, I’ve never been to a place where the locals have never seen a white person before.

There are many places on this planet where this is still possible, but I never would have expected resort-packed Fiji to be one of them.

And yet, it is. Gustavo Ten Hoever, writing for Travel & Leisure, went in search of “authentic” Fiji and actually found it.

The informative article whisks the reader through some of the more popular areas of the island nation and then delves into the backcountry where tourists are non-existent and the sight of a white person sends children running away in fear.

Sounds like my kind of place!
