Dressed for the Village
The villages are still rather traditional. Everyone, men and women, must dress modestly with legs covered to below the knees. So as soon as you get out of your kayak, you put on a Sulu, or sarong. There are other customs to observe: only the chief is allowed to wear a hat in a village, you don't show the soles of your feet when sitting, and so on. The last missionary eaten in Fiji went into the pot because he touched a chief's head, so we were careful not to do that.
