Day 173 – Feejee Experience Day 4: Playing in the mud pools

We woke this morning relatively hungover-free considering the amount of alcohol we drank last night. To top it off, breakfast was spent listening to a few of the girls complaining about bed bugs. Two or three of them had bites all over their arms and backs….unlucky!

It’s the last day of the tour and we spent the morning chilling out on a beach before heading for lunch at what appeared to be someone’s house which had a large front garden.

The itinerary stated that we would be having an “Indo-Fijian” lunch. Which part was Fijian, I’m not too sure as it was basically a curry but perhaps I’m just being slightly ignorant. Before lunch, we had a roti making class where we could each cook our own rotis. We had to roll out the dough before cooking it on a wood-fired BBQ to be served with our main meal which consisted of four little curry dishes.

After lunch we headed to  the Sabeto hot mud pools. We arrived at the first pool but this wasn’t that warm so we headed over to another pool. This was nicer as it was warmer and more secluded. Once we had enough, we cleaned up at the on-site shower facilities and started to hang out with the millions of kids at the pools playing ball games.

They were so cute and so enthusiastic to play games with us.

After spending around an hour and a half or so at the mud pools, we got back into the van for the last time to be dropped off at our respective resorts, ours would be Mama’s Tropic of Capricorn again.

On the way back, we realised that we forgot to pick up our bag of clothes which we left at the side of the mudpool. The bag had my leggings and John’s T-shirt…slightly frustrating as they were my only pair of leggings with me but I guess they’re pretty cheap and I can probably pick some up in Australia.

After saying goodbye to Emmy and Mr P, we arrived back at Mama’s in good time where we spent the evening eating Fijian fish and having a few drinks.
