In Fiji, a Meke is a traditional dance done for a party. Men and women wear grass skirts or long dresses and dance. A lovo is an underground oven used for cooking food. Traditionally at a lovo, people sing and dance and enjoy good food. If you ever go to Hawaii (part of our country but also in the Pacific Ocean like Fiji) you may go to a luau. A lovo is similar to a Hawaiian luau. Shawn loved all of the meat that was cooked. I enjoyed the cooked pumpkin, a taro which is a root that tastes similar to potato. Another pastime in Fiji is singing. We were able to enjoy some songs written by Sailasa (the chef on the island) and his trio. They play the guitars and sing songs in their local Fijian language.
