All About Fiji

What's that you say? You want to know a little more about Fiji? Ok, since you asked so nicely. ;) And also because I just love this country.

  • The Capital of Fiji is Suva.  This is Suva.
I'm pretty sure anything above 5 floors counts as a skyscaper there.

  • Fiji is an Island Nation in the South Pacific. It's just chillin' in the middle of the ocean.

  • Fiji is made up of about 300 islands. About 100 of those are inhabited.

  • Fiji's Population is roughly 875,000. That's less than 1/3 of Utah's Population (2.85 Million)
  • This is Fiji's flag. It's kinda funky, but I still love it.
  • Fiji is BEAUTIFUL. It has awesome beaches and scuba diving.  You better believe I'm going back to visit when I can swim. :)

  • They eat lots of fun foods in Fiji.  Like fun fruits that I can't even pronounce yet and whole roasted pigs and curry and Roti and rice.  Luckily I like all of those foods. Also, they used to have cannibalism.  But I think that's pretty much over. 

  • In Fiji, they speak Fijian. Fijian is next to impossible to learn unless you are in the MTC or in country. But it sounds pretty legit.  Here is a sample.   Fijian Song
  • THERE IS A TEMPLE IN FIJI! And I'm convinced it's probably the most beautiful temple of all. (Dedicated June 18th, 2000)

  • Church Membership in Fiji:  16,951 (That's almost 2% of the population!)
  • Number of Congregations: 48
  • The first missionaries arrived in Fiji in 1843
