These photo galleries show some of the most remarkable elements of the REU expedition to Fiji. Fellows get to experience the Fijian lifestyle first hand, living very near the native people of that country, eating from the land, and learning about a very traditional lifestyle with a trained, anthropological eye.
This experience is nothing like a tourist visit to the Fijian Islands. REU expeditions change the lives of the young Fellows who get to travel and learn Anthropology and Archaeology with such a practical approach.
Each gallery carries a short description written by REU Fellows, who got so see these moments in real life. These descriptions give context and a personal take on the Fellows’s account of the trip.
