Tavurvur and the Harbour

Chapter Fifteen continues.

Sunrises and Big Steaming Volcanos.

1G or not 3A... that is not a question?

Airniugini have 8 Business Class seats on their Fokker 100s, and when you have seat 3A, not a business class seat, then perhaps sitting down in 1G, a business class seat is an alternative? WTF? How does that work? Serial?

I could understand the local chap who had seat 21A so he sat in the first 2 he saw; 2A but a white edumacated chap who read books on the future of the Chinese Communist Party could understand the difference between 1G and 3fuckin'A.

Needless to say, the iPod is one of the world's great movement machines and I buried myself amongst the Arctic Monkeys.

Later, while standing around the carousel waiting for all the luggage to be unloaded, the flight from Hagen was very disappointed when told that because of 800kilograms of excess cargo, they would have to return in 4 hours to pick up anything that wasn't on the carousel at said given time.

Those guys from Hagen often get dumped with bad news... grumpy springs to mind.
An awesome photo, so peaceful and serene, perhaps not like flying on Airniugini!

Great big pano

splendid pano !

I always try for row 7 or 8. A compromise between the drinks trolley arriving in a timely fashion and not having the toilet queue leaning over you all the flight. I love that sea and sky! It looks like the place to be.

800kg excess!!! That's Xtreme

@swilde - cabbages.

@dandolo - 6A is theeeeee most overbooked seat in PNG!

@cocobella @peterdegraaff - pano thanks to you both!

@judithdeacon - oh yeah!

Lovely, calming scene. Don't get me started on narcissists.

@michelleyoung - I guess.... 'cept the bandwidth at Rabaul is retarded

@riverlandphotos - oh yeah.
April 9th, 2013  
I like the dark volcano just not quite touched by the rising sun...looks great!
April 9th, 2013  
Love the sunset/sunrise sequence. Are there larger versions on Flickr?
April 9th, 2013  
Another very pretty shot. I'm a little jealous as all my sunrise attempts have been foiled by the clouds. Ugh!
April 9th, 2013  
awesome panorama
April 9th, 2013  
Stunning Pano. Best large of course. Yes, we all have our stories and preferences for a particular plane seat.
April 9th, 2013  
poor left behind luggage
April 9th, 2013  
Gorgeous shot that seems to include both night and day! I love the soft colors and for that i am adding it to my FAV's!
April 9th, 2013  
I never used to care what seat I got......as long as it was in the back. Now I always want a window!!
April 9th, 2013

A stunning landscape shot. Has to be a Fav
April 9th, 2013  
Beautiful colors and landscape. Most things about air travel suck.
April 9th, 2013  
Beautiful panorama. Serene colors. The peacefulness of this landscape shot seems to be the opposite of your airplane flight.
April 10th, 2013  
This is very serene....your mind must have been looking for that after your day! Lovely.
April 10th, 2013  
Ooooooh JD.... another high 9 and another amazing fave. What a scene. (I am wondering how long it would take me to save up for a trip to PNG... with no heavy luggage of course...!)

@filsie65 Do! Go this summer, I'll be in the Philippines and will ride a great white over to PNG and buy you all beers with the money I saved hitching on fish.
April 10th, 2013  
@riverlandphotos @filsie65 - Fish Hitching rocks!
April 10th, 2013

June 21st, 2013  
@talea - think about the maintenance?
June 21st, 2013  
What maintenance? It's a daydream. :D Or a retirement dream. That or a small houseboat.
June 28th, 2013  
@talea - just adding a dose of reality to your daydreams...
June 28th, 2013  
Reality bites. And the maintenance might be worth it :p
