Kokopo's only Hot Rod

He-Who-Doesn’t-Blog was driving back to work after lunch yesterday (well it is the day before now!!) when he came upon this car on fire. Being the good blogger’s assistant that he is, he snapped away and caught all the action.


“Fire, fire”


The fire is put out

The fire brigade goes back to the station 100 metres down the road

The crowd clears.



Um….....Excuse me!……Hey!……Yoohoo anyone there?? …………

Listen I’m stuck here with this stupid stick!!!!………Hell-o !!"


Last night someone sabotaged some cable in Moresby somewhere, that put the rest of PNG out of phone/fax and internet AGAIN - I managed to get Vietnam blog posted but it fell down before I could get Rabaul done!!!! Send more gin!!!!!

Hope you can visit my new blog Vietnam – same same but different

Interesting post. Do you remember when everyone had dial up? I do. we did. Everyone did. It was slow. You could get kicked off for typing breast, model, or nude. It went off with these then famous words, "Goodbye."
