Who would have thought the opening of the Paunangisu village public toilet would make it onto the BBC News website? Not me that’s for sure.
Read into it what you like, but if we can just secure the Queen’s official endorsement we might change the toilet’s slogan to something like “Royal Flush before Royal Ascent” … maybe it needs a bit more work …?

Barry’s father spoke little of his time fighting the Japanese in PNG during the second world war, but he did relate the wonderful care and treatment the troops received at the hands of the local Melanesians. This no doubt sowed the seed that would grow into young Barry’s total immersion into the world of PNG and his plan to now acquire a sea plane so he can deliver an even better medical service to the remote and far flung islands.
I’ve attached a great article from a recent Weekend Australian Magazine. A real inspiration and an example of where life can lead us when we follow those unexplained messages and callings of the mind and spirit.
