Michael - I was caught short at Gordons market the other month, took one look at the loos and decided hold it in.

Port Moresby capital is supposed to serve many vital services to PNG, but the population has in most cases let the rest of the country down.

The current UPNG students strike is one.

How easy would it be for all those 'walk against corruption' advocates and leaders to just mosey on down to the Forum and get together with students in a show of support?

If anyone is fearing violence, it's probably because you're not there to participate and make sure the few nuts are under control.

Also, when are you guys going to get Powes Parkop to build some more public restrooms?

I recall about ten years ago the only functioning restroom where you were not in grave danger of contracting disease was behind Stop n' Shop Boroko.

Phil - one thing that struck me on a recent visit is the half-finished casino building which towers over Boroko. How did that thing ever get planning permission? And why was it never finished? (I suspect the right palms were not greased).
