Beschreibungen

This book is a revised and edited version of the original Book “A Dimdim in Paradise” published by Balboa Press in 2014. I went to Papua New Guinea with Mining Giant Conzinc Rio Tinto in 1970 to work in their Bougainville Mine and fell hopelessly in love with the country, and it’s people. This book follows my journey through the thirty-six years I lived in-country, teaching in an agricultural college, vocational training centres and the fisheries college. I attended six-to-six dances deep in the jungle, hid under a table in a tavern that was attacked by warring tribesmen during a tribal fight. I helped remove the Apartheid system, and lived for weeks at a time in the villages of the idyllic Duke of York islands.
Thirty six years in Papua New Guinea, one of the most exotic and remote countries in the world. See how I a Dimdim (a foreigner) immersed myself in the day to day life of the Papua New Guinea people. Whether it was teaching at boarding schools, working as a mechanic at the Bougainville Copper Mine, or as a busn mechanic in a Japanese logging company, every day was exciting, and often hilarious.
