12 August 2013 | Panapompom, Louisiades, Papua New Guinea
Last night I got stung by a mosquito. Today, while fixing a sewing machine, the man asked if we had pain medication. He thinks he has malaria. The name of this island is Panapompom, which means "Island of the Elephantitus disease." On Wednesday we plan to walk across the island to visit the school. Directions: Follow the trail and be careful crossing the river because crocodiles live there. Maybe this explains why we have seen no other cruising boats in these islands?
