Change of plans


Unfortunately we had to change our plans regarding Papua New Guinea. After arriving in Port Moresby on Wednesday we began receiving reports from various local people concerning safety in the areas where we where headed and they were not good...well, not good for me.
The presence of a white female is not desirable in certain parts of PNG so we had to rethink our plans. We were due to fly out to the Highlands on Thursday but our flight was cancelled and we had more time to think and after sleepless night we decided it would be better if I went to Australia and Julian would continue the trip as it had a major business component that needed to be taken care of. So I arrived in Melbourne on Friday night and I will be staying here for about a month and wait for Julian.
Since my stay in PNG lasted only two days I only have a handful of photos (mostly taken in our hotel, therefore they do not show the real PNG, I will post some more when Julian is back). Anyway, it was quite a journey, very emotional and nerve wrecking at the same time. It was incredibly hard to leave without Julian but that is what I had to do. My plan for the next month is to explore Melbourne :) Going on my first shoping spree this afternoon :) Will keep you posted.

Niestety musielismy troche zmodyfikowac nasze plany dotyczace Papua Nowa Gwinea. Po przylocie do Port Moresby w srode, zaczelismy otrzymywac dosc niepokojace informacje na temat bezpieczenstwa w rejonach, do ktorych sie wybieralismy i nie byly one zbyt optymistyczne...zwlaszcza dla mnie. Obecnosc bialej kobiety w niektorych partiach PNG nie jest mile widziana, wiec bylismy zmuszeni przemyslec nasze plany. W czwartek mielismy kontynuowac nasza podroz, ale nasz lot zostal odwolany dzieki czemu mielismy wiecej czasu na myslenie co dalej. Po bezsennej nocy zdecydowalismy, ze bedzie lepiej jesli ja wroce do Australii a Julian bedzie kontynuowal dalsza podroz, poniewaz wymagaly tego sprawy zawodowe. Tak wiec, ja dotarlam do Melbourne w piatek wieczorem i zostane tutaj kolo miesiaca czekajac na Juliana.
Jako, ze moj pobyt w PNG trwal zaledwie kilka dni, mam niewiele zdjec (wiekszosc byla zrobiona w hotelu, takze nie odzwierciedla prawdziwej PNG, zamieszcze wiecej zdjec po powrocie Juliana). Ta krotka podroz obfitowala w wiele emocji, bylo mi strasznie ciezko podjac decyzje o powrocie bez Juliana, ale nie bylo innego wyjscia. Moj plan na najblizszy miesiac to zwiedzanie Melbourne :) A dzisiejszego popoludnia wybieram sie na zakupy :)
