Fijian Friends


eseteri She was the Levuka Public School headmaster's house girl. I stayed at his house (the Thomases lived with him) for two nights while put the QVS play on in 1970. Since the others went to school I was left with Eseteri for the duration of the days. So we became friends. In fact, more than friends. She said I was a Fijian, down to my large pores. And she decided that she would be my Fijian mother. I was able to visit her once in Suva in 1971.
