We've back from our trip to Madang. We got in about 6:00 this evening after 9 hours driving 445 km. That's 282 miles. If you'd add the total distance bumping up and down, it would be a lot further! Yes, that's just a little over 30 miles/hour on average. And only two brief stops. You just can't make much time when you have to crawl through potholes, and climb up and down the edge of ground-slips!
When we got in, the Radcliffes had a nice supper for us of corn bread and soup.
I've posted some photos and captions on Facebook. Just use this link. You don't have to be a member of Facebook (but you could join and keep track of us there) to see the photos. Click on the little photos to see big versions and captions.
