Hal

Back in August we heard that a single retired man was coming to PNG to help in CTS (Communications and Technical Services), the department I work in.  We volunteered to meet him at the airport and show him all the things he needed to know about living in Ukarumpa. 

 

I was shocked when he told me he had just turned 80; he's very fit and walks everywhere he goes.  He came to fix radios which is great since there are not a lot of people with this skill anymore.  Many translators rely on their radio when they are out in a remote village as their only way to communicate with people on center; pilots, doctors, etc.  Two or three times a week the translators answer roll call on their radios so we can know they're alive and well.
