Having a break from baking today, finished a book (fiction) about the wreak of the Batavia. Won't be recommending it, too weird. Left me feeling quite odd, JJ's going to read it and will probably enjoy it.
OMG less than 2 weeks in and I am struggling with feeding my family. The fresh produce is just so limited. So is the meat really, all frozen and just chunks or in bulk so it is hard to identify!! Finding we can get potatoes and carrots fairly well but the rest is very hit and miss. I bought a capsicum that was 3 parts rotten & I paid $5 for that privilege!!! People tell me they can't grow capsicum here but will give it a try. No lettuce just cucumber and occasionally avocados (of all things!) Not much in the way of tomatoes either, very scare!!
The GG arrives for a head of State visit early next month i think??? We are hoping that we can get a box of fresh fruit and vege put on the RAAF plane. Our Airline who used to fly from Brisbane with refuelling in Honiara & Nauru then straight to Tarawa no longer flies which means the overnight stop via Fiji makes it very difficult to bring back and fresh produce or meat like the expats so often did when flying Our Airline, oh well, I am feeling the fat rolls building from all the carbs!! Better read up on the gym equipment and get in there!!
the compound next door is part of the Kiribati Police Training centre. Blue houses are owned by the government. The thatching is traditionally Pandanus and water tight!
Our neighbours!! JJ & Jack took a walk out on the mud flats at low tide to see the WWII bomber plane remains that are exposed at low tide. Of couse the WWII history is one of the reasons JJ wanted this posting, it's his thing!
