Hello!

Monday morning, Ray wanted a bow.

So I gave him one.

Then I went to line 2 to check some things, then later to the warehouse to pick up some replacement parts which were delivered.  It took a while, so we waited.20130722_134225

In the evening, saw the big moon rise!

Then I went for dinner.  When lining up for a tray at the restaurant, there’s gruesome safety flashes to put you off your meal.

Have a closer look!

Then I had my dinner.  Carrots and pasta which looked like little fingers, and chicken, with meat like fingers.

The next morning, when I came out of my room to go to breakfast, I saw the moon setting.  So I went back to my room to get my camera.

Had a meeting in the morning.

Then went for lunch.

After lunch, saw Duncan coming to the bus stop!

Ray had a nap.

Jonathan gave me a badge (which he got from his grandparents who got it with a pack of smarties when their team came last in a quiz night).  I also discovered that my phone camera corrupts some images (see below!)

In the evening, Gala gave me an Orange Tim Tam to share with Andrew.

Then I went for dinner.

Jonathan was looking red, as he went for a run.  So I took a photo to show him.

For breakfast Wednesday morning, I decided to break the trend.  I’ve been having 2 fried eggs on toast for the past few weeks.  This time, I had an omelette and put some gochujang with it!  I’ve been having this for breakfast since then.  Quick to eat and tasty.

Got to work and saw the cats entertaining each other.

Then had a walkdown from 8 until 12.

There were some gruesome safety posters around site.  I posted it here, but when reviewing the draft, decided not to post it, it’s seriously gruesome.

As part of the walkdown, we had to go up to elevation 122m.  It’s a nice view from up there.

And here’s a portable toilet at elevation 122m.  It’s dirty!

For lunch, I wasn’t pleased with what was on offer, but, the baguettes and butter are consistently good.  So I had some baguette and fillings!  Good lunch!

After lunch, tried to pick up the things from warehouse, but it was too big for our ute.

Here’s a “good” guy.  He always likes to say “good”.

I didn’t finish my kiwi fruit at breakfast, so finished it in the afternoon.  Soft and sweet!

Then dinner.

Thursday pre-sunrise looked like a fire in the sky.

20130725_063900

Thursday was also goodbye-Oliver and goodbye Shayan day! Sad smile

20130725_095203

Actually, I didn’t know he was Oliver until the day he was leaving.

All the best to these people leaving…

I hope to see Shayan in the office again when I get back!  Before we mobilised to this project, Shayan and I were both assisting with the pumping rig safety training project back at the Perth office.  I remember when we were just talking about coming here, and now he has come, and gone…

On the way to lunch, I saw that they were cleaning up the road markers (spraying them clean).  This is because the Prime Minister of France will visit on Saturday.

20130725_112726

Lunch again didn’t look great, so I had mostly yummy baguettes!

20130725_114001

And sat across from Daniel, who is leaving Saturday Sad smile

Not long after lunch, Gala brought out some chips in the office.  We weren’t hungry, but they were there and they tasted so good.

Then had a teleconference with Germany 5:30pm-7pm.  I managed to leave just before 7pm.  It was Thursday, so, burger night!

20130725_190734

My burger wasn’t very good.

Friday morning, I saw that Lak loves his baguettes too!

20130726_075909

I collected some more things from the warehouse and let the vendors sort through it.  It felt like Christmas time.

Friday night dinner, DUCK.

Many people gone to Koniambo hotel tonight, to celebrate 3 things.

1) Daniel Qiao is demobilising Sad smile

2) It’s Duncan’s birthday on Saturday.

3) Jean-Marc Ayrault, the Prime Minister of France, will visit on Saturday.
