Fiji Word of the day…

This at this point is my favorite Fijian word*… It’s the only one I can remember right now too.

Bula or Ni sa bula vinaka (the formal long version). This word encompasses a lot… it’s a blessing of sorts. It is used to say hello, or welcome and is even used if you sneeze. It means life or a way of wishing good health and fortune.

Pretty cool huh… all that from one little word.

Bula to all of you who read this here blog.

 

* The Fine Print – this information could be completely wrong. I found it on a website about Fiji. I have no actual proof it’s accurate.
