Port Moresby

March 24, 2010

Port Moresby is the capital of Papua New Guinea. This first visit was a very short one day (2 nights) visit. This was an orientation tour, as a preparation for the Office and Housing construction project which is the object of my mission. The preparation is not finalized and the construction is expected to start by the end of 2010 at the earliest.  I stayed these 2 nights at the Airways Hotel which overlooks the airport.

Manly, 15 km to the East, is the closest coast place from our house. It takes 20 minutes to get there.

Sunshine Beach – March 13

March 15, 2010

Sunshine Beach is about 180km North of Brisbane, just before Noosa. The sea was very rough that day. We were not ten minutes on the beach that it started raining. It reminded me of Ijmuiden, on the North Sea.

La plage Sunshine Beach est située à environ 180km au nord de Brisbane, juste avant Noosa. La mer était démomtée ce jour là. Nous étions à peine sur la plage qu’il commença à pleuvoir. Ca me rappela Ijmuiden, sur la mer du Nord.

 Nice spot, just outside Brisbane. Peacefull and quite. We had a swim, the water was incredibly warm, maybe 25 degrees.

Chouette endroit, tout près de Brisbane. Calme et tranquille. Nous nous sommes baignés. L’eau était délicieusement chaude, peut être bien 25 degrés.

We had a swim, the water was nice and warm
