TRAVELLING

Post by tigger » Tue Feb 28, 2012 10:51 am

Guys

for those who know me, I am off for 4 to 6 weeks back down to Paoua New Guinea, technical geographic description - Shit Hole.

I will try to log in while there but if not hope to see you in due course,
I will take the Hawk Flag and try to get some shots with the natives hopefully not while they are slicing up vegatables for the main course cooking pot i.e. me

Cheers Trev

Trev

I worked for 8 weeks in Jayapura and Wamena which is in Irian Jaya, the Indonesian side of New Guinea so I have some idea of what you will experience.

For those of us who have never been there, Google Wamena and see what the guys wear as local fashion.

Safe trip Trev
