A fellow we had met before met us at the wharf. He told us there was a young fellow injured and if we had a medical kit could we do something for him. Ha had a gouge in the top of his foot about an inch and a bit long and half an inch wide, with the skin folded back.
I went back to the boat and got the medical kit. I cleaned it up and dressed it, but he needs to go to Hospital. I gave him some antibiotics as well. A big fella who seemed to be in charge said, OK I am going to Levuka, I take him to hospital.
I asked if the old Lister generator was still here....it was...we went and had a look. It's a 1903 Lister diesel...it was used by the leper hospital when it was here and its still going ! In the room next door wrapped in plastic was a modern genset, Chinese, 2 months old, he said, "no good. Water pump broken, doesn't go. Not like Lister, he aircooled, no need for water."
As we came back from a walk along the shore we saw the long boat heading off to Levuka with the young chap on board.
So tomorrow we head to Levuka, the first capital of Fiji.
