Green Means GO

On the way to the gym this morning I pulled up at a set of lights. In Australia, a green light during daylight hours means GO. Here, it means GO if you're game. It is quite ordinary to have three buses and a taxi hurtle through their red light and our green one.

Our kids were discussing this, and settled on the understanding that what we recognise as Rules, Fijians know as Recommendations.  Guidelines, if you please.  Follow them if you like, but we're expecting you won't.  It's an unspoken, unwritten Rule of their own.
