With the first long weekend after the five months of lockdown, thousands of families are spending their time enjoying the outdoors.
Fijivillage visited a few meeting spots in Suva today to catch up with how people are spending their time as restrictions ease.
Melvin Kumar from Nadera says he wanted to treat his children so he took them to the movies and then to My Suva Park.
He says the children have spent most of the five months locked down inside the house.
Kumar says the last five months was challenging for him because he worked only a few hours a week but he is thankful that they have returned to their normal working hours now.
Adi Naitalekitoga Vucago says it has been months since they have not been to the beach because of the restrictions.
She says they planned to spend family time outdoors this long weekend because they have been couped up inside their home for the past months.
Vucago says the last few months have been challenging because the outbreak disrupted her source of income but now, her business is starting to pick up again.
Lote Ratu of Waidamudamu settlement says they planned to travel around Viti Levu for this long break.
He says they wanted to get away from Suva.
Ratu says they are spending today at My Suva Park to celebrate the love of God in guiding and providing for them throughout the lockdown period.
