When we leave for work in the morning, this is the sight that most often greets us...
|We know we included him in our post last time, but he is just so cute!|
Then it's off down the hill - quite fast if you are Duncan (who likes to cut it fine for catching the P2 bus to aviation!)
|We can't get used to seeing bananas just growing by the side of the road. Can you spot them?|
The hills are quite steep and it can be quite a muddy walk - definitely no high heels for Tru.
Once you are down the hill, you are in the heart of Ukarumpa - the store, post office, finance office (like the bank for us), school, clinic and director's office are all very close together. It is wonderful to have such excellent facilities available and both expats and Papua New Guineans work in the different places.
|The High School buildings are in the background.|
|These are the clinic buildings - we have two great doctors and a team of lovely people to keep us healthy while we are here.|
|Back up the hill...|
|Home sweet home - ours is the ground floor flat above the red door (which leads to a storage area). You can also see our water tanks!|
So we wonder if it all looks like you thought it would? We never expected it to be so green!
