Mission to Fiji, Day 4 of 8.
- Day 1 (10.185 Mixed Seafood with Beet Reduction)
- Day 2 (10.186 Chicken in Black Bean Sauce)
- Day 3 (10.187 Grilled Octopus)
In Fiji to conduct a series of planning meetings and ocular inspections – Wednesday to Friday in and around Nadi, Monday and Tuesday in Suva – in preparation for the Fifth Meeting of the Asia-Pacific Parliamentarian Forum on Global Health, which will be held in Fiji in August 2019 and highlight the role of parliamentarians in addressing the health impacts of climate change. This is the fourth such mission in advance of the Fifth Meeting (see previously 10.118 Awhi Farms…).
Coincidentally, UK happens to be in Nadi, on her way back to Kiribati after home leave in Korea. She reports that the situation in Kiribati is far worse than we had all anticipated (see generally 10.077 UK’s Farewell Wellness Lunch). I implored her to get her family out, even if she remains committed to staying.
The food was good.
UK seemed to relish everything, which seemed rather sad, in light of what she has to look forward to.
