I hope you're all enjoying a restful and happy holiday season. I've spent most of this day finally putting this "last" Papua New Guinea blog together. Most of the photos are from July and August of this year. I've been meaning to get this together since then...but just haven't had the spare time to put the entry together.
Although the vast majority of the photos are from PNG, there are about 15 or so shots at the end which were taken when I arrived back in Canada and rode my new motorcycle down to Vancouver from Yellowknife. I didn't want to start a new blog just for these shots...and I wanted to show off my new hog to you all...so I thought I'd tack the photos on at the end.
I've had a REALLY busy 3 last months. I've been teaching a course at the University of British Columbia, here in Vangroovie
In the end it all came together very nicely, but it wasn't without some challenges. Trying to keep 385 spunky students "in line" kept me on my toes throughout. I probably learned more than they did this term! I'm hoping the university will toss some more work in this area my way in the new year.
As of the end of December my contract will be over. The dean of the engineering faculty seems to be quite keen on bringing me back in some capacity...we'll see what happens.
In the meantime, I am really glad to get this blog done. It brought back some nice memories...boy it already seems like a lifetime ago that I took these pictures...how time flies, eh?
Speaking of flying...I am off again on a plane on the 2nd of January. This time Cuba for a week of fun in the sun. It's long been a dream of mine to go to Cuba...and thanks to Ozgur, I'll finally get there.
I'm really looking forward to drinking a few mojitos and smoking a fat cigar (even though I don't smoke) with Fidel. Viva la revolucion! Some stories/photos from there to come in the new year.
All my best...as always,
Miguelito en transito
