    Great photos of the Tall Ships. I remember when they sailed into Sydney Harbour as part of the bi-centenial celebrations, it was a great sight. My parents then lived in a house built on the side of a cliff overlooking the harbour and we were lucky to be on leave from New Guinea. We all sat on their patio and sipped champagne (I think the guys drank beer) and watched the parade of ships.

    Flying in Papua New Guinea

    Koach that gap is the one we all flew through to get home to Goroka where we were living in the 70s and 80s .. if the gap was clouded in, the planes turned back. They say that if a pilot has flown and survived in Papua New Guinea, they can fly anywhere in the world. There is one airport that was, at one time, the busiest airport in the world, due to the discovery of gold and the flights in and out with equipment. Some say it was Wau (the strip in the top photo) but I believe it was a different one but still in the same timeframe. With mineral discoveries and wars and the only way to get around New Guinea being by air, there's a lot of flying in often hazardous conditions.

    You're right. The second is a great picture. I also like the V with the mountains hidden by clouds. That would be nerve wracking flight lol

    Flying in Papua New Guinea

    We all stay away from the Kukukukus .. they are a very short race and very fierce .. they are fantastic security guards too My favourite photo is the second one of the pilot looking up to the aircraft with the cameraman on board. I love the detail and the river down below, very typical of what we saw when we were flying to and from in PNG

  22. Please join us for our next chat in #readers_corner at 8:30 P.M. (EST) June 22nd, 2019 -- 00:30 A.M. (GMT) June 23rd -- for a discussion of "A Horseman in the Sky" by Ambrose Bierce. Bierce (June 1842 to approximately 1914) was a soldier in the Union Army during the American civil war. He enlisted as a private but was quickly promoted through the ranks and eventual commissioned rising to the grade of Major. After the war he turned to writing, having several collections of stories published. He became a columnist at the San Francisco "Wasp" where he became known as for his acerbic, often cruel, critiques; see this interesting example http://www.sfmuseum.org/hist5/bierce.html (you might find it interesting). Bierce continued his literary career until the second decade of the 20th century when, after the death of both of his sons --alcoholism and suicide-- he decided to travel to Mexico to observe what was happening during the Mexican revolution. He died during that trip, exact date unknown. This week's story concerns a West Virginian lad, who despite his father's loyalty to the State of Virginia, enlists in the Union Army. During a union campaign into West Virginia, he is posted as a picket for the Union element camped during a movement not far from where his family lives. The story looks at the moral dilemma that the soldier makes. Of interest to anyone not familiar with the American Civil War, the western counties of Virginia refused to join the State in seceding from the Union, and became a separate, independent state after the war. I think you will enjoy reading the story and I know we will have lots of fun discussing it. The story is available from eastofthe web.com, one of our familiar sources of short literature: http://www.eastoftheweb.com/short-stories/UBooks/HorSky.shtm Meeting Place: #Readers_Corner Webchat: http://koach.com/chatlogin.php?chan=readers_corner mIRC Users: /server -m chat3.koach.com:6667 -j #readers_corner I hope to see you all at our chat.
