Back in Aussie

I’m back safe and sound from Papua New Guinea. I have a lot of stuff to write and I’ll try to get some of it up over the next few days. I’m in Cairns for two days before I fly to Darwin and start the drive to Perth. That is going to make going from Sydney to Cairns look like a trip around the block.

Oddly enough, I met a lot of Americans in PNG. I almost never meet Americans while traveling and I hadn’t expected to meet any in PNG of all places.

I probably had more conversations with people in PNG than I did my entire time in Australia. You don’t get the average 18-22 year old gap year European who is out to get drunk in Papua New Guinea.

    I dug through Gary’s archives to find a post that answers your question. Hopefully this covers everything you want to know.

    Americans show up in Random places. I met one living Coral Bay, Australia. A town of like 50 people.

    So what camera are you using? Do you use an SLR or a regular point and click? I’m looking to go out within the next week and buy a new one for my next trip. You’ve inspired me to take better photos!
