26 June 2011:

View of the village church from the outside. We could hear the singing throughout dinner, even though we were quite a distance from the church. Some of the guests who skipped dinner to attend services tell me that a Fijian service is interesting to see, since there is a lot of dancing and emotions being displayed.

As for us, our post-dinner entertainment consisted of bizarre dancing that the men seemed very into. It was hilarious that we weren't sure what to make of it, so when they asked "do you want more?" to psych us up, we all looked at each other and answered a collective "um... yes?" to which the guys would immediately get back into dancing. There was also a crab that kept running into people and eventually got stepped on by one of the dancers.
