Flight to Cairns Australia

Laura, Jessica, and I (Paul) flew to Cairns so I could have surgery to repair a  hernia.  We flew on a Beechcraft King Air from Aiyura airstrip to Cairns, Australia.  You can see an aerial view of Ukarumpa in one of the pictures.  When we arrived in Australia, we were met by 4 people in masks and gowns and an infrared sensor to detect if anybody had a fever and was sick with the Swine Flu.

 

I had surgery  Friday afternoon, spent the night, and  was released Saturday.  I will go back to the doctor Friday, May 15th and if all is well we will return to PNG on May 18th
