Hi there! How has your week been so far?
Well, PNG advertises itself as "The Land of the Unexpected", and yesterday was a good example of that! We managed to get to the (well before) dawn Anzac service, run by the 2 Aussies at the local military base. As there are only 6 other Aussies in Wewak, and no Kiwis, we were glad of the 20 or so PNG military, the governor and several other local folks who came along to raise flags and lay wreaths at the memorial in town.
Hi from a very hot and sticky Wewak! How has your week started out so far?
We have been back here for 10 days, and we really hit the ground running, cleaning up the very dusty flat... it is the last one on the set of 3, and with all the banana trees cut down while we were gone, now the view is expansive! But some uninvited guests had moved in, including this large centipede that hopped aboard my sandal for a ride one morning! Thankfully, I kicked off the sandal.. .and him... before he could bite.
Hi from Wewak! How are you doing?
Well, we got back to the PNG capital of Port Moresby and had a day layover with a Leprosy Mission friend to recover from 2 nights awake, and to get (at least a bit) used to the heat and humidity again. It was really good, too, that a gal from our church was in Port Moresby at the same time (she organises clinic teams on one of the YWAM medical ships), so we finally got to meet her, and took her along on our quest to see some of PNG’s unique Birds of Paradise.
