Robin and Michael - thank you.

Last night on Twitter, I was blocked by trek tour operator Kokoda Trail Expeditions. This came after I tweeted them asking questions about an image they had used to promote their Anzac Day 2019 trek tour.

The image was concerning to me, and I expressed that the PNG carrier looked to be carrying a pack that looked much too large/heavy for his stature. And he was wearing what I consider inappropriate footwear (slippers) for the hazardous terrain of the Trail.

The trek operator was swift to delete the image/tweet, then proceeded to block me.

Good expose, Rashmii.

Your concluding rhetorical question is spot on.

Australian government and the alphabet soup organizations are exploiting Kokoda Trail and the people.

Robin Lillicrapp

Rashmii - a great effort of passing on your well articulated observations.

They are all the more relevant coming from your pen leavened by the realisations of genuine inequity displayed by many toward the PNG carriers and overall management of the industry.

May your comments result in a turnaround of present circumstances before the complete erosion of this iconic operation.
