Fishos

Moments like these, I could understand why a boat is sometimes referred to as a pleasurecraft. I am coming to the end of my Year 2 PNG retrospective, and it has been a wonderful journey and I have shared some beautiful sights around Papua New Guinea - The Land of the Unexpected.

But back to this shot.... Port Moresby is a shithole really. For 9 months of the year it is dry, dusty, stinky and hot and for 3 months, it is wet, stinky and hotter. So when your good friend says, let's go out to Fishos for the day, you jump on board.

An afternoon of escape, no bars on the windows, no security screens, no guns, no buai... just kickin' back and relaxing in the warm sun and warm water.

Life needs sol wara sometimes.

Photo taken 22 December 2006
