The nackenfijiexperience is taking a little break again (to go and have my nose repaired, ok .. kidding)

We are heading over to that other island .. called australia .. and you can follow our adventures there by visiting the nacken travel blog. What am I most looking forward to? Eating good Sushi !!!!

You gotta love your cat .. even if she totally whacks your nose





yes .. it was the cat .. NOT my wife ... but of course we have a male to blame ... Nietzsche seems to be in ├╝ber-fighting mode these days .. and it seems he stressed out Misha .. so .. when I tried to rescue her, she thought it would be a great idea to carve her initials into my nose ...

Great .. seems the threat of powercuts is over for a bit ... according to the papers, the government has stepped in and provides a gazzilion of Fiji$$$ to have some generators leased and diesel fuel pumped into them. And still no rain, which is weird .. I also heard that Mango is back in season ... will go and raid the market in a bit ...

So last night we were invited short notice to Robert's new place ... and he sure has a nice view ... click on the pic to get a bigger version .. or click here for a Quicktime VR movie.


To the left is downtown Suva, to the right is Lami and the heap there (the brown one, not the green one) is the waste dump. The red thing in the back is the sunset :)

And here a nice night shot of downtown Suva

Weather has been really weird, actually pretty nice .. but too dry for things like water supply and electricity (which is based on water driven turbines) ... I am revise my initial attitude .,. and recommend October as the best time to visit Fiji .... blue skies, not too humid ... and no rain ...

Not much else to report about .. Diwali is coming up again, which means we are about to have been here for a year .. and stuff starting to repeat ... cool .. Kids are playing with fireworks left and right ...

Feeling adventurous? Suicidial? Tired of russian roulette ??? try "taking a shower with the dirty cat" ... that sure is tentalizing ...

Last night, Nietzsche was MIA while I heard a lot of cat commotion outside .. sure there was some fighting going on ... seems that Nietzsche as a male cat feels he needs to protect the female and his terratory .. anyways .. i could not get him in ... he came back much later and had tons of scars and blood all over him .. kind of scary .. but he behaved like nothing happened ...

anyways .. i had the great idea to take him into the shower with me .. if it had not been for my tummy, I would have switched on the webcam :)

Our shower is an enclosed cabin, you need to be able to jump 2 meters or 7 feet .. and Nietzsche sure tried that ... and he made it to 1.5 m / 5 ft ... but no way out .. i was able to totally soak him before he was able to put some nice claw marks into my hand ... but he sure smells better now ....

I think I will try that more often with him.

Had a good weekend ??? we sure had ... nice and lazy ...

Ritsu went on a girlie saturday thing with Kozue ... manicure, pedicure .. stuff like that ... friday we went out with Robert, his wife Hillary and friend 'Nief' .. i have NO idea how to spell that name ...

Sunday we slept in and then went to cost-u-less, where we ran into Bill and Vero ... yep .. Suva is small :) Later we got to see "Down with Love", which was very fluffy, tasty and entertaining ... i love the whole idea of creating a smoothie out of many of the best 60ies-placed-in-manhattan movies .. lots of good ideas in it ... too bad Renee is no Doris Day ... and when she starts her big speech, the movie turns .. hmm .. weird/ugly/dissapointing ... but I still recommend this movie .. it just could have been better ... i wish they would try again ... or make more / different 60ies revivals ...

Thanks to Lucien's Fotolog, I signed up too .. check here http://www.fotolog.net/caipirina/... though I doubt there will be any other pictures than here .. maybe one day i find a special purpose for that fotolog :)
