One of the teachers at the college made a dessert called vaka lolo. It is made with the taro plant. Here in Fiji they call the taro plant "dalo" (dah - lo). Mike tricked me into trying it by saying it was good. All I can say is it was better than poi. Of course the Fijians all love it. But I asked them if they would rather have vaka lolo or chocolate cake and they did not hesitate to say, "chocolate cake!"

Parent Night at the Primary School
Sister Rabuka, class 1 teacher, talking to the parents.
Brother Nathan, class 3 math teacher, telling parents about the new Singapore math books.
Sister Toganivalu, class 4 math teacher.
A new family, whose children are attending the Primary School. They are a great family. Gina was voted in as the PGTA (PTA) President that evening. Mike had to have our picture taken with them because the father looked familiar. Who do you think he looks like? He said when he was in the Florida airport everyone stood up when he walked in and called him Mr. President.

Good-by Sister Levaci. You will be missed. One of the teachers at the college was leaving because she got a new job. It worked better for their family, since her husband is also a teacher, to have a job that is more flexible.
