I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll .......


A lot of the buildings in the Highlander Hotel complex are thatched.

This is the souvenir shop in the car park. These gentlemen just loved me!!


This gentleman was replacing some of the thatching on the hotel walkways, the week I was there.

I'm "down the road" in Goroka this week. See you on the weekend.

Nice shots. I'd love to watch them thatching the roof and walls.

I love British thatch, I love tropical thatch. We have none of it here.

That's such a skill isn't it. Thatches always put me off, on account of the spiders in it. I'm guessing the spiders where you are, are ten times the size? Brr. I can hardly dare imagine.

I'm a bit with Lynn, Jules, it freaks me out just thinking of rats, mice, cockies etc that live in thatch. it does look great though.

Crumbs, you could huff and puff until Benson came home. These thatched roof look professionally done.

I must say, the hats and shirts of the men are a real PNG fashion statement. They're great, Jules.

I think that Lynn might find that the spiders are eaten by the cockroaches, who are eaten by rats who in turn are eaten by the snakes, then ..... and finally the crocodiles. The whole place strikes me as being pristine and clean.
Just look out for the crocs, Lynn !!!!
And, - to make it easier, they are easier to spot. They look like a lady's hand-bag-on-the-move.
Rapidly.

I want to see this place in real life--love the roofs, -of course they adored you. I showed someone your blog a few days ago, and his first comment was -- "she's REALLY pretty! An elegant brunette." (looking at your profile pic first before your post) I'd like to look at all the souvenirs.
