Puppy, Poma and Partings

Greetings again. This post has something to say on a ragtag puppy that appeared on our doorstep, Poma(one of the villages in the Oxfam’s WASH programme including a living bridge , coleus plants, and the grave of an important man; Rosemary’s work to try and establish an x-ray department at the local health centre, and finishes with a short tribute to a departing VSA volunteer. As usual, click on the highlighted text to connect to the attached document.Puppy Poma & Partings January 2012 and to finish off this introduction a photo I took at a reef near Kieta of a clam.

It looks like we will be starting our journey home over Easter. Also a small team from the Mr Pip film will be returning to tidy up a few loose ends in the next few weeks and Rosie has been asked to give a hand with some of admin/logistics.

Take care!
