Default It's a Hard Life .... but someone's got to do it !!!!

As I drew the short straw, I have to work this year over Christmas and New Year.

So I thought I would share with you the view as I relax after dinner following yet another gruelling days work ........not!

What a pity there's no bar on board! Just right for a G&T in the 28 degree heat.

Yes, we are off Fakfak, a small port on the north-west coast of Irian Jaya (Papua New Guinea) doing a seismic survey.

None that I've seen.

The whales and dolphins don't seem to mind the guns going off. they swim almost to within 100m of the ship.

Yes, satellite broadband and telephones via Norway ( Norsat). Unfortunately, this vessel is not equiped with Satellite TV.

I'm surprised at the color of the cliffs. Looks like limestone.
