Yaqona and Fiji are synonymous

Fiji Yaqona CeremonyYaqona in Fiji is cultural.

When I think of yaqona (pronounced Yangona) or kava,  I think of Fiji – the traditions that surround the yaqona ceremony and your welcome to Fiji, the refreshing drink that used to be available in all the places where I worked in Fiji, the singing around the kava bowl with guitars late into the evening and sadly the kani kani (dry skin) and kava’s deleterious effects on the body from excessive use.

More on this post later… In the meantime here are some interesting links:
