A DIMDIM in Paradise: Thirty Six Years in Papua New Guinea

Andy Fletcher

I went to Papua New Guinea with Mining giant Conzinc Rio Tinto in 1970 to work for a year in their Bougainville Mine, and fell hopelessly in love with the country, and its people. This book follows my journey through the thirty six years I lived in country. Teaching in an Agricultural College, Vocational Training Centres and the Fisheries College. I attended six to six dances deep in the jungle, hid under a table in a tavern that was attacked by warring tribesmen during a tribal fight, helped remove the Apartheid system, and lived for weeks at a time in the Villages of the idyllic Tropical Duke of York Islands
