This series of blog posts is part of the A to Z 2019 Blogging Challenge in which I will write snapshot memories of my early married life in the then Territory of Papua New Guinea.
Daytrips from Goroka in our first car, the yellow Datsun
Roads in the Highlands limited, daytrip opportunities few
Often up the narrow twisting road to Daulo Pass
Cliffs on one side, mountain drops on the other
Trucks choosing the middle path require
Steady nerves to hold your own path.
Higher than Mt Kosciuszko at 2474m (8117ft)
Vastly different in geography
Family and friends visiting were given the “grand tour”.
Returning one day we were confronted by
Warriors with spears, arrows and axes
Luckily they were on a mission for payback
Not interested in us….whew!
Diwai – timber
Didiman – government agricultural officer
What kind of work does the didiman do, the pig says oink and the cow says moo.
or my husband’s version which he thinks is a Gerehu Primary School variation from our kids…
What kind of work does the didiman do, the horse says quack and the pig says moo.
