Back in 2005 when I was doing the tour of duty in Papua (formerly known as Irian Jaya, not to be confused with Papua New Guinea) and we were in that rickety plane taking off to Wamena , I thought to myself … wow, how amazing is this? Sure, the job was hard, but imagine being there after just watching the Discovery channel’s doco about the Ndani tribe a few months before without having the slightest clue that you would end up among them soon, it was just simply amazing.
I am reminded of this trip as I was doing some work on this rainy Saturday afternoon and it struck me how much I love my current job that this Papua experience pales in comparison.
I didn’t think that it could get better, but it does.
Well, welcome to my Red Fort, Sir Bob Geldof. It’s an incredible icing to my already incredible cupcake year.
And no, I don’t want to shoot Mondays down. Not at all.
p/s: This version of a duet between Sir Bob Geldof and Bon Jovi is my nod to AAX boss.
