The Sound of Mr Pip,etc

Greetings again. This time we have Mr Pip crew back in town to polish off their sound recordings for the movie, some local drama, and developments with Arawa Urban Council and Oxfam, as well as some local market scenes. As usual click on the highlighted text to go to this week’s report.The sound of Mr Pip …etc

Also another two beautiful orchid for your pleasure. Unfortunately I only had my phone camera for the amazing leopard spot blooms.

Take care!

Bit of a gas problem…..

No this isn’t a post about a dose of the local variation on “Dehli Belly” – it’s a success story about finally dealing with a particular hazard I discovered soon after arriving in Arawa – about finding the right organisation and persuading it to do something, all through the medium of a somewhat erratic internet . As usual, click on the following highlighted text and follow through to the article that I drafted up and submitted to a local PNG paper, the Post Courier . We’ll see if it gets published!     Gas disposal

A couple of photos for a diversion:-

What I foound interesting about this was the resemblance to some modern military helicopters. I expect the copter designers copied a good design! This dragonfly’s abilitiy to hover motionless (apart from beating wings that are almost too fast to see) in one place is quite amazing.

Arawa bay taken not far from Tunuru Mission station. The interesting thing about this picture taken from the present shoreline is that, according to a local resident, they used to grow coconuts right out to the far side of the sand bank in the middle of the picture, a few years back!

And to finish off a delicate little orchid I spotted in someones garden here in Arawa. It is about 20mm long.

Take care and happy reading!
