since i had only 2 nights left in fiji, i wanted my own room. ..i asked if they had a massage therapist on staff. ..they said "not any more."
.
so... lenny went into negotiation mode. ..i pulled out my u.s.a. national certification paperwork and made an offer: i'd play massage therapist if i could get a room upgrade.

since there were only about 12 backpackers on the island, and since nobody had any $, my massage therapy job was easy. ..i did give a back & neck massage to the owner ("sairo"), and i demonstrated a basic thai massage to one of the future therapists. .
.
sairo said that his "american massage" made his headache go away, so he decided that lenny was going to be an official member of the staff. ..he said something in another language, and minutes later, the receptionist was handing me the official staff shirt (below):

sooooo... if you ever want a massage therapy job in fiji, let me put in a good word for you.
.
bula,
lenny
