Thumbs up Bougainville/Buka Trip.

FIVE OF US RECENTLY TOURED THE NORTHERN PART OF BOUGANVILLE, HAVING FLOWN IN TO BUKA & CATCHING A BANANA BOAT (WHICH LEFT EVERY FEW SECONDS, ON WEEKDAYS) ACROSS TO BOUGANVILLE, WHICH ONLY TOOK A COUPLE OF MINUTES. THEN IT WAS EASY TO HIRE A 4WD UTE TO TAKE US TO TINPUTZ.

WE LIVED ON BOUGANVILLE, IN NUMEROUS PLACES, FOR MANY YEARS UNTIL THE 90'S. THERE ARE NUMEROUS PLACES TO STAY IN BUKA, TOO.

WE FOUND A WONDERFUL GUEST HOUSE, AT TINPUTZ MISSION STATION, THAT WAS JUST STARTING UP. THE OWNER/OPERATORS ARE BEAUTIFUL LOCAL PEOPLE, WHO GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO MAKE YOUR STAY COMFORTABLE, BOUGANVILLE STYLE. SHOWER/LOO/FLY-WIRE. THEY PROVIDE FOOD WHICH CONSISTS OF RICE & LOCAL VEGETABLES, FRUIT & MEAT, CHICKEN, (TEA WITH POWDERED MILK). WE TOOK BREAD, SPREADS, CANS OF DRINK & SNACKS WITH US FROM BUKA, WHICH WAS A GREAT IDEA.

COMMUNICATION, FROM OUTSIDE BOUGANVILLE, MAY TAKE HOURS, DAYS OR EVEN WEEKS, TO GET TO THE RIGHT PERSON, AS THE MAIL SYSTEM IS VERY SLOW. BUT IF YOU HAVE TIME ON YOUR HANDS.............HAVE PATIENCE...........& YOUR STAY WILL BE WELL WORTHWHILE..........VERY REASONABLY PRICED COMPARED WITH ACCOMODATION IN BUKA.

THE GUEST HOUSE IS CALLED:
"Tapa Hatana Lodge",
Tinputz,
Bouganville
PNG.



Owner/Operators: Paul and Gladys Sam


Postal Address:
Tinputz,
P.O. Box 575,
BUKA,
Bouganville A.R.,
PAPUA NEW GUINEA.

Trip to certain locations like these do have a lot of impact which i am sure would bring a lot of impact for us to get it all better throughout.
At the same time keeping it all working is one of the major activities in it.
