Wer in Fiji nur am Strand und in Ressorts war, hat das Land nicht wirklich kennengelernt - man muss in die Dörfer gehen, und Navala ist sicher eines der schönsten.In Fiji, who was on the beach and in ministries, has not really met the country – you have to go into the villages, and North is certainly one of the most beautiful.show original

The cyclone in 2016 has been there and the blue tents of the United Nations are the most visible index. Many homes were blown out and are gradually rebuilt... or not.
