Cliff jumping in Fiji
Our first day in Kadavu, the fourth biggest island in Fiji, about 100 km south of the main island but still wonderfully undeveloped, we decided to take a hike to a local village. We gained the most surprising of all tour guides, a 6 year old boy carrying a bag of rice the size of his own body, who brought us to a hidden waterfall and swimming hole outside his village. He took of his shirt and started to climb a very steep cliff. Although we were holding our breath, we were delighted by his bravery and joy and he lept into the blue pool below. We were joined by about 10 other kids who had just gotten out of school who wanted to show off their climbing and jumping skills. We were staying about 5 km away at Matava eco-resort and routinely talk about going back to that magical place. We would love to venture back to that village to get the guts up to climb and leap ourselves:)
