Flying via NTM's C90 plane to Madang for our 10 day break!
It was hot! But it was beautiful by the ocean!
Jacob and the Intern guys enjoyed taking a course to learn how to dive! Actually they thought it was a very hard course but really enjoyed the last day of diving in the ocean! I had fun watching them! We were thankful that we had saved some of our money from our wedding gifts so we could use it for this course and our stay at the hotel!
Ethan, Jacob, Jonas and Richard, ready to learn how to get in the water with their gear on. Jacob will be happy next year when we go to Madang with the new Interns... he won't have the hard work of the dive course, he can just enjoy diving after the guys learn!
Yayoi and Aso, the main instructors teaching Richard, Jacob, Ethan, Till and Jonas. This was a long day in the pool... 9 am - 6 pm!! They were all water logged by the end of the day!
At first I couldn't find them anywhere around to take a picture... and then I saw them...:)
We really enjoyed buying fish at this fish market, just outside our hotel every day for lunch!
We were quite surprised to see a Lobster at the fish market, only K5.00. :)
Jonas and Richard enjoying their pizza! They ate the whole thing!!!
There are some crazy looking trees in the Madang area! This is the truck of this tree... and it is only 1/4 of it!!! Every evening we would walk to a local restaurant for some good food. At least usually it was good food. :) I really enjoyed our time relaxing in Madang... reading, napping, second hand shopping, working on my bilem for Jacob, swimming and watching a few movies!
