I agree, Berend. The landscape is so so green. The small village in the background has only 8 houses, and while I was here, my home was the green one partly obscured by the 2 storied pink home. Betty, and her parents, cared for me while I was in Dingo Dingo, so I am pleased to have this photo of her.

She attends the local high school, walking 2.8 km along this road each way. I walked with her to school on my last morning there, then continued for another 4 hours till I arrived back at the river where the bridge had been destroyed by floods earlier in the year. From there I rode on a truck across Malaita Island arriving in Auki late in the afternoon. Long walks in equatorial climate (30C and 75% humidity) are rewarded with a deep sleep the following night!



Thank you, Berend. This is so typical of the grazing landscapes in the Mary Valley.

Dear miru3po,

Thanks for your very real interest in my images. Thanks too for the Fav encouragement. The colour of the lake is due to the heavy load of glacial rock flour in this melt-water lake.

Glacial landscapes are so different from those of other systems.
