Pants or Sulus???

Here are a group of young missionaries after church on Sunday.  Most of us are not used to seeing male missionaries in skirts.....well, sulus, as they are called in Fiji.  At first we thought it looked, well, funny, especially with a white shirt and tie, but as we soon found out, we saw many men, (non Mormon), wearing sulus with sandals, (or barefoot), with shirts and ties, when they were going to work or to church.  
  Somehow it just looks better on Fijian men and when worn with a tropical shirt.

  1. I remember our first time attending church in Hawaii and seeing a few Polynesian brethren in "skirts". Different for us but it wasn't a big deal.
