Hello there! Yes, you read correctly! One evening in Mana Island they organised a crab race! There were ten crabs, each with a number painted on its shell. First there was an auction for people to buy a crab - they were all named after a country and a famous person from that country - Dan Carter from New Zealand, Jackie Chan from China, Johnny Wilkinson from England etc etc...
The bf had taken $70 FJD to the crab racing, and I thought that would be MORE than enough for a bit of fun. But NO! We were outbid on every single crab! The most expensive crab was over $100!!
When bidding was finished, they placed all the crabs in the middle of a chalk circle, and the first three crabs to cross the chalk line were the winners. First prize was $370!!!!!!!! Who'd have thought there'd be so much money in racing crabs?!
