Just popping in to say that we are safely in PNG.
Right now we are staying in a transit house (basically a big room with 4 beds, a kitchen and side bathroom) while we wait for our allocated house to have some maintenance done. I am very grateful for the air conditioning
It is very hot, but we are enjoying fresh papaya and coconut and village bananas (smaller than the type you see in the shops). And I’m drinking lots of water.
There has been some hold-up with shipping our stuff from South Africa and we have been told that it will arrive in Port Moresby at the end of April. We have also been told that it will take about three weeks to clear customs here in PNG, so we are not expecting to see our furniture (and my yarn and fabric stashes) until at least the end of May. Good thing I bought
far too much
Internet is very slow so I don’t know how a post with pictures will go, but we are hoping for a better solution once we are in our own house.
