We spent Christmas 2012 in San Francisco with Ben, Sarah and Simone. Had a wonderful time including a few days up at Tahoe just before Christmas day. The snow came down and was just great, particularly for someone who spends most of his time just few degrees south of the Equator.
While there we took lots of photos and these are some of my favourites with Simone. Simone was bit over 5 months old when these were taken.
But I’m now back in Kokopo and Maria is in Brisbane. I’m having to get re-acclimatised to the heat and humidity. Seem to be using the air conditioner here a lot more.
And now bit of added interest with volcano showing some activity although this is not expected to last.
This is my favourite photo. Was taken up in Tahoe, snow had been falling all day and night – you can see it just reaching the bottom of the window behind me.
Been a while since I’ve posted anything.
But Tavurver has started up again although it is only expected to last a few days. The attached photo shows how it was on the morning of Tuesday 22nd January. The only hassle is that Air Niugini have already suspended flights in and out of Tokua although the airport remains officially open and other airlines flying in and out.
Its now a day later and looks to be largely over, just the occasional ash plume. But Air Niugini have suspended flights until 27th when they will reconsider.
