QANTAS will be back in Papua New Guinea

QANTAS will be back in Papua New Guinea after almost 8 years.
Local papers this week revealed that QANTAS has already submitted an application for 12 x weekly services between Cairns & Port Moresby starting July 2010.
This reflects the economic growth and recent resource industry boom in Papua New Guinea, but it will surely have a positive impact on Tourism sector as well.
It will be a challenge for local airlines, but we hope this will lift the overall service up to a world standard level, and become a Win-Win situation for everybody.

Back home in PNG

Finally we are back home in Papua New Guinea.
As the airplane was approaching Jackson International Airport, Port Moresby, we saw the the ever-green landscape & reef-fringed blue ocean.
We normally complain about the heat & humid, but for now, the warm sunshine is comfortable for the body after spending sometime in ice-covered land.
The words came out naturally - "Thanks God, we are back in Paradise..."

It is funny we always admire sophisticated & efficient society in "developed" countries, but when we come back to Papua New Guinea, we always feel healed from inside. It is difficult to express in words, but Papua New Guinea has something special, for sure.

As soon as we were back, we ate Kaukau (sweet potato), Banana and chicken cooked with coconut milk. Although I like Eisbein & Pilsner, nothing is better than home food with SP Beer !

It is very unusual weather in Germany (& Europe in general).

ITB Berlin is finished and we are on our way to Czech Republic.

Asaro Mudman is not a superman - ITB

"Asaro Mudman" is a popular figure at ITB Berlin. As he stands at Papua New Guinea booth, many people gather to get his photos, or even try to touch him.
Everybody expects him to stand whole day, but he needs a rest, since Asaro Mudman is not a "superman". If you really want to know who he is, please come to Papua New Guinea and visit Mudman in his Asaro village outside of Goroka.
