Wow. From a second hand and now you want gourmet? Fortunately you are in luck. In addition to grilled cheese, I can make grits and hash, and even haggis.

Be careful about immigrating to Fiji...

When I was in Rarotonga, I met a US citizen who was working in Fiji, doing software for the government. He found that the government could be difficult to deal with. For example, they would not give him back his passport, and would only allow him to leave the country to specific other locations that did not have a US embassy, so he could not get a new passport. They put several mechanisms in place to prevent him from leaving Fiji.

The list of requirements to deposit $100K or $40K per year give a little hint of that. Nothing ominous about such requirements, but it does expose the immigrant to the potential for abuse at the hands of relatively low paid government agents.

Here's a different angle for doing biz. I was recently talking to an English lass in a souvenir shop in Soufriere on St. Lucia. She owned the place and said she opened it first and then dealt with the other stuff. Bottom line was, "You want me to lock the door and take these four women's jobs away? She was a tough cookie operating in a tough town. Not a place for the fearful.
