In 2001, Bob was sent by Australian Volunteers International to Papua New Guinea to teach at a Catholic mission school, 800km up the Fly River. Book contents include cannibalism, murder, witchcraft, tragedy, hardship, safety concerns and humour. 20 months after returning from his posting, Bob flew his Cessna aircraft up past Papua New Guinea to Wuvulu Island near the equator and when homeward bound, called into Kiunga for a few days to catch up with his ex-students, fellow teachers and mission personnel. Along the way, Bob refers to events in some of the 79 countries he has visited during his world travels.
