ha, ha, this recalls half a century ago…

…when I was 21 and first came to PNG. I showed the islanders how to build a lobster trap (in so far as I knew having seen them but never built one -- I was a bit of a smart alec, although I am sure you won’t believe that).

Then they showed me how they caught lobster (or painted crayfish).

Put on a little pair of swimming goggles (then about 20 cents), slide into the (warm!) water over the edge of the reef, and surface 3-4 minutes later with a lobster in each hand having pulled them out of their havens in holes in the reef!

It was about then that I got this strong feeling that, contrary to my previously strongly held belief that I knew everything, I still needed to learn a thing or two

You see what I mean when I talk about being in paradise though?

Cheers, geoff
