The lodge is about 30 kilometers from the small town of Tari, up in the mountains and has a strip like a ski jump. Great fun landing and as a passenger taking off you just seem to fly off the end and whoop up into the air. From there on the stay is an adventure. I went for a hike up the road and had a long chat with a young guy from the local village. As we walked along he showed me his grandmother's hut.

I returned yesterday from eleven days in the highlands. Internet access was not good there but I am catching up on emails now that I am back in Bomana (Port Moresby). I am glad to be out of Australia at the moment so that I don't have to see Tony Abbot and Carlton celebrating victories. I don't know yet who won the seat in Ballarat. Did Catherine King retain her seat?
I flew to Mt Hagen in the highlands and then Barb Broad drove ...
