Solomon Islands

     The original plan was to fly in to Honiara, Solomon Islands, directly from Port Moresby, PNG. However, this route has been cancelled due to the Pandemic. I had to reroute and fly via Brisbane, Australia instead. This took a lot longer as I also had to stay over night in Brisbane and subsequently get a visa for Australia. Once in Solomon Islands, I had to change my plans of visiting the outer islands, as the previous rather regular and dependent transportation had been altered as well. This was however OK, as I found a lovely little beach house directly on the beach. I spent four full days here reading books, swimming and exploring the surrounding. I was the only visitor and the first foreign visitor since the Pandemic. Solomon Islands had only recently opened up after the Pandemic. I also spent time with a Swedish lady, Ann, who had married locally and lived on the island for now almost 16 years.

    With a 4-day stop-over in Karachi, Pakistan, we only got a very short flavor of this bustling mega city. Huge pollution and overcrowded already back in 1990 when we made our short visit. Loved it however, and am now planning to come back for a more thorough visit to this 200 million country. We saw, during our short visit, a traditional cock-fight as well as the traditional fight between the Cobra and the Mungo. Again, these photos are only scanned copies of printed photos - hence the poor quality and slightly faded pictures.
