WAY back when the Kennecott company was exploring the Star Mountains for what would become the Ok Tedi mine, the only hotel in the district was in Daru.
Most of the kiaps at the surrounding patrol posts would offer company personnel temporary accommodation.
Occasionally the Kennecott people needed longer term accommodation. One of these people stayed in my house for several weeks. He was acting as the company loadmaster while Kennecott was using our airstrip.
He was a burly character who had been a cop in New South Wales. He was also the son of a prominent state politician. After a couple of days I worked out that he was gay.
