The grounds are well kept, the buildings impressive, the location pleasant.
But it is a ghost town, as it has been since the military (why does an island nation with no neighbours need an army?) stole Fiji's democracy, locked up its Parliament, tore up its constitution, and installed its commanders as pretenders to power.
The impressive great hall of Parliament is routinely swept and aired, but the chamber echoes only to the sound of soft footsteps. No voices are allowed to debate the issues of the day, much less call for liberty, freedom or democracy.
Like everything about Fiji's military regime, the empty Parliament is a sad, pathetic image: a mute testament to the hollowed out pretentiousness of men who crave power, but lack the compassion to serve or the understanding to lead.
