Fijian Flashback – Suva market

After travelling several hours by bus from Nadi the day before we decided to check out some of Suva on foot. It was a much bigger place; Nadi being a large town and Suva a small city. It was a reasonable walk into the city centre from the Suva Motor Inn. Our focus was the market. It was located near the busy bus station.

On the perimeter of the market we noticed the flower sellers.

Once inside it was surprising how dark it was. Being under cover and also quite a cloudy day made it dark I guess.

We were again impressed by the display skills of the stallholders. In some cases it was quite artistic the way vegetables and fruit were presented.

Just like in Nadi there was even a separate section for kava root stalls.

After making few purchases of fruit we worked our way back towards the main street. Our last image of the market wasn’t of a busy stall or a hard working stallholder but this guy who had obviously been up early and was taking a well earned rest. (Yes, when asked he was quite happy to pose for me.)

So after a quick bite of lunch we too headed for a well earned rest by the pool at our accommodation, Suva Motor Inn.

Note: It is now almost 12 months since our trip to Fiji. However, because we headed off to France within a few days of returning home it is only now that I find I have time to write about the last few days of our time in Fiji. Hence the ‘Fijian Flashback’ idea.
