    time sending books and computers for the school library and medical supplies to the Health Centre and facilitating the visits of others such as the engineering students who worked on their water supply Besides a few days in Port Moresby and our trip to Rabaul we enjoyed a couple of nights at the In Wewak boutique Hotel before and after our village adventure recommended for any visit you may be planning It was interesting to note that we white skin guests were in the minority different from Hazel s last visit to PNG in 1994 We flew to Rabaul to visit again the area where Hazel and Ron lived at Rarongo College from 1964 to 1977 seeing the devastation caused by the continuing volcanic eruptions on the once beautiful town and staying at a dive resort previously part of a plantation next door to the college It rained so hard one day we thought the ceiling sagging with water might descend on our bed Swimming at Rarongo beach was as idyllic as ever and our long walk back along the beach from Sunday church at Vunairima greeting villagers and their children along the way gave us a chance to meet many friendly and welcoming folk Opening of the Community House at Ilahita in the East Sepik region PNG In Port Moresby we met Kenneth a cousin of Harris who was recently in Melbourne and shown around by his friend Hilda Anne who is one of the promising young graduates in professional employment We stayed at MAPANG a missionary guest house meeting locals mission staff and other professionals passing through from the hinterland There we also met with Rev Samson Lowa Moderator of the United Church an impressive leader for the challenges being faced by PNG Despite the guarded shops somewhat dilapidated buildings mixed with modern offices warnings to be careful and few white skins around we walked the streets and enjoyed the buzz and energy of the city The National Museum where we seemed to be the only visitors is excellent and next door to the Parliament building also a must see However the guard made sure we were accompanied on the 5 minute walk between the two Security is a problem there but we felt quite safe at Rabaul and in the village On our return to Australia we sadly had to relinquish a handmade piece of pottery given to Hazel by Harris sister Quarantine law is very strictly adhered to here The string bag bilums were fumigated but the gift of a stone axe with its wooden handle was taken However we still have the stone Family and grandchildren events are fairly frequent In November we were altogether on the Beswick side celebrating Robert s 50th birthday David delighted in searching out old photos and putting them on a disc to show on a computer at the lunch Mathieson 2 Robert and Catherine s son is so like Robert was at his age Andrew just back from a
