Excitement of the week – a couple of VSA volunteers travelled back to Buka on Saturday morning in the PMV (public minibus).After two hours of travelling came across a roadblock with a group of rather threatening looking blokes with knives. The PMV’s did a quick u-turn short of the roadblock and headed back to Arawa where they remonstrated with the police (apparently it all turned out after all to be a police roadblock to try to recover a stolen vehicle), refueled and headed off back to Buka, getting there this time . An unpleasant 3.5hr journey turned into a 9hr endurance feat!
Have a nice week!
