A Reminder of Times Past

Grand Pacific Hotel, Suva, Fiji Islands.

This postcard of the Grand Pacific Hotel in Fiji doesn’t really do it justice. It was a magnificent hotel surrounded by lush tropical greenery. We stayed there in the mid-1970’s. This was our initial hostelry while we looked for a house to rent for two years. What an introduction it was to dengue fever which was raging throughout the Fiji Islands just at that time. We were so sick – one by one we succumbed. But thankfully we each got better and could pursue the normal activities associated with arriving in a new place. And I can remember the Grand Pacific Hotel, and a certain Dr. Mehta, with fondness despite being so sick there. Fiji was a wonderful posting. I wanted to stay there forever!
