Mt Hagen Daily Photo

My phone lines are back, but my computer (with all my photos) isn't. So it will have to be Mt Hagen Daily Photo until the doctor says my 'puter can come home again!!!
Mt Hagen's mountain air means that trees and plants grow there that do not look "PNG".

Soaring pines, eucalyptus, azaleas, gladiolas, lilies etc abound.
All these photos were taken at the Highlander Hotel where I stayed
with only my zoom lens - my other one is dead -
not having a good run am I???
I can't remember shooting an albatross ...must have????

Mt Hagen's terrain reminds me of Wamena in Papua, which is perfectly reasonable. It's all beautiful, isn't it!

It looks like a very nice place to visit. In fact it looks like yet another bit of paradise in PNG.

Gladioli? Scrivens. Now my mind is filled with images of Dame Edna and Morrissey, a scary combination but both huge glad-fans.

Beautiful shots. I hope all your problems get solved soon.

Hi All - 'puter is still in intensive care. Lens is dead.

Yes Dive - I thought the same thing. My PNG colleague from Bougainville had never seen them!!!

Thanks for that comment on my story--I wondered if it was too gruesome--I was trying to be informative--and sometimes we forget that there have always been big disasters-- looking back at the NY Times in the 1800's there were scads of them reported from all over the world. We seem to think there are more disasters now, but the tragedies were often man made back in "olden times." although there were plenty of natural disasters reported back then too--sometimes several in the same month--just like "nowadays".

Cool mountain air sounds good to me.

All looks so lush up in the highlands, but there again, it's probably lush EVERYWHERE in PNG, except the places where Aussie resources companies have visited!
