Day 3Up at 5am to a cold shower URG! And to find the breakfast we’d pre-ordered for 5.30am had been magnificently packed into take away lunch boxes!!! It was truly an amazing sight although it seems we forgot to take photographic evidence!!
My eggs Benedict came complete with 2 eggs, a
bun, 250g of bacon 3 sausages, 3 potatoes cut up & cooked, a piece of
pineapple, pawpaw & something else!!!
I ate the fruit & eggs & left the rest.
Plumbing Boy had arranged a
wake up call for 5am & was most surprised I hear after showering, dressing
& packing ready to go to find Dad still half asleep & in bed when he
knocked on the door. The man on
reception thought PB might have needed a little extra time to wake up & in
his wisdom, woke him an hour earlier @ 4am. PB, having switched off his phone & not having a watch or a clock
in his room was none the wiser until he saw DAD!
into the mini van after Dave attempted to sort out payment for our
accommodation. His joking around wasn't helping & I wondered whether I’d actually survive the trip with him or not
at this point. Off to the Yacht club
around 1km away to meet our next transport to Wau which unfortunately but not
unexpectedly did not show up.
Onto plan B. The owner of the blue van, an expat, although in Australia loaned it to us to get to Wau. A quick change of driver & off we went along a bitumen road to start with, then rocky rutted gravel sections, across some rivers/creeks & up the side of a mountain to Wau. 3 hours later we arrived.
We stopped at the Wau memorial to the fallen soldiers & there awaited our PNG guide to collect us as the mini van would not make it across the river in once piece.
