Night time in Arawa

Hope you find this entertaining .We are both well.  Rosie has had a day at a local Grammar (private) school and may be going to help teach English three times a week. There may be a substantial amount of aid money coming into Arawa from Australia to restore the infrastructure from next year . Watch this space.

I have replaced the .docx files attached to the other postings with JPG files so all should be able to read them all.

Still fighting junky modems and intermittent connections – I can’t even get the downloaded software update to be accepted! We are well and slowly adapting to local conditions. See attached pre-recorded more detailed comments

Latest news is that some groups might be trying to disrupt the forthcoming haveelections (starting next week) and that there may be guns involved. We  been advised by our area rep to maintaintain a low profile but there seems no reason for us to be targets. Locals seem to be carrying on with their regular lives regardless and no-one seems to be getting too excited about it all.

Chris’s parcel with our blown radio repair bits has finally arrived in Buka and I hope to have it delivered next week and hopefully repair the radio- so that we can keep up with world news . Prayers and fingers crossed for my success most welcome!
