Fiji

Anyone have news on cruising in Fiji in 2010 in light of governmental turmoil there?

I was in Fiji during the December 2006 coup.
All very civilized, even postponed a day to allow fo a cricket match.
Lovley country and great people.
Safe sailing

I was in Suva a few months ago for several weeks. No problems at all except that the local officials seemed to have discovered a new fumigation scam that was costing some cruisers several hundred dollars.

We quite liked Fiji and would not mind spending more time there and seeing more islands - it is quite large with a lot of variety. In some cases you need special permits though

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
