Dining at the Airways Poolside Restaurant situated in the 5-star Airways Hotel near Jacksons International Airport (Papua New Guinea) is not an everyday pastime for most Port Moresby-ites. So when we get to lunch there we focus mainly on the food and amiable conversation with an intermittent look at activities on the tarmac of Port Moresby’s international airport.
For me last week, it was lunch with one of my best friends who has never been there before so I was keen to give her my recommendations on what I considered a great dish. We both ended up at the buffet, as you can see the Beef Stir-fry with loads of beautiful healthy veggies.
After our sumptuous lunch we began to look around and across to the tarmac and what seemed to be a very busy day at the airport with aircraft landing and taking off almost every 15 minutes or so.
However, my eyes riveted on to this mountain top in the distance and lo and behold we noticed a gap right at the top of it! How come I’ve never seen it before? I pointed the scene out to my friend and we started to ask questions for which we both didn’t seem to have any answers like, what the name of the mountain is, is it part of the Owen Stanley Range etc.
I even Google-d it this morning but no luck. May be am not asking the right questions!
It remains a mystery until I can point it out to someone in the know like a geographer who may be able to answer some of my questions. I hate that when I’m kept in suspense.
