My sojourn working on the out islands of Milne Bay in PNG has taught me that there are other vessels, other ways of practising medicine, other adventures. A difficult lesson, but learned. Next month it is back to Europe – a fortnight with Maxine in Moscow then down to Valetta to begin recovering hypothermic refugees in Libyan coastal waters. Well, for as long as my mortgage allows.
So, what t do with this website? I am loath to close it down. I am fond of writing my blogs and I’d like to keep it going, even though Tainui’s name will become a historical curiosity rather than central focus.
So, any suggestions and recommendations about this website would be most welcome. Seriously.
