Hi James,

It's great to know that you're in Lae fulltime. I'm not really sure if there are any CS's in Lae but there are a few of us here in Madang.

Almost most of us are working in Divine Word University. That's only for your info.

Hi Robert,

Good to hear from you.
Would really like to get up to Madang for a weekend and your couch surfing experience sounds pretty awesome.
Whats the best way to get there by road from Lae? Car or is there a bus?

What do you do at the University?

Hi James,

How's Lae? Is it still raining as usual? I hope not.

Anyway, I work at Divine Word University as a Graphic Designer. I was previously working with Persons with Disabilities as the Media Officer but changed jobs just a few months ago.

There are a few ways to get to Madang either by air or road. There are buses running to and fro Madang and Lae everyday. You can catch a ride at the Eriku bus stop just next to the main field. I think the bus fare has gone up to K60. You'll find the bus' crew screaming their heads off every morning. hahaaa.....

Yeah well, it was nice to hear from you. I'll catch you soon.
