Goroka University

These photos were taken on the Goroka University campus. It has lovely gardens and a great view!!!

This post in front of the library, has carvings of the Asaro mudmen and their round huts.

This is my travelling companion, colleague and friend, the wonderful Annie with me.

Regarding Kris McCracken's shark bait suggestion, at Kris's blog, "Louis" suggested using cats instead of dogs. A concerned neighbor called 911 thinking "Louis" must be suicidal to post such a suggestion in a world full of cat lovers....

Annie looks lovely, Jules.
Boy, oh boy, I wish my local university looked as good as that one!

This is what I call a place to go for a retreat and education would be secondary. Nice photographs. Say hi to your companion.

Rose said...

That looks like a beautiful place to be...I love that second photo.

I agree with Abraham. I think it must be difficult to focus on old books when you have such wonders before your eyes (including the ladies :-))

What a great setting to have your picture taken Jules.. Annie as an excellent smile and a good choice of friends.

Wow, I guess I better see if that school will take an old guy like me. It looks like such a nice place to learn.

I liked seeing the photo of you and Annie.

Take care,

Must be something to do with women called 'Annie'...they are all wonderful in my experience. The uni is a beautiful building in an awesome setting by the looks of things.

Over at San Francisco Bay Daily Photo, instead of a place of learning, we have Visions of Hell.

You are managing to change the way I view PNG in my mind's eye. Up until following your posts, I imagined life behind razor wire coupled with fear.

Thank you for this ...

Stunning views! Quite different from my college in Maine!

Kris McCracken said...

You would struggle to find better maintained gardens anywhere in the world, I think!

Jules said...

Hi All

Julie - I guess it is in your attitude. I am always careful but walk around confidently and with a friendly attitude and really enjoy the places and the people I see.

Amazing country and such a beautiful University. I would probably stare out the window all day and never get anything done.
