Day 10: Arrival in PNG, some tunes from the legendary Pacific Gold Studios in Rabaul

We arrived at the Gazelle peninsula in East New Britain Province of Papua New Guinea yesterday morning; we were heading towards Rabaul but we’re anchored off Kokopo as Rabaul, once a major city of the South Pacific area was almost completely destroyed by the eruption of Mt Tavurvur in 1994. The bay is amazing and…surrounded by four majestic craters – Tavurvur is still active. I’ll try to go explore what is left of of Rabaul, and maybe climb up Kombiu (Mt Mother) in the next few days, as Fleur de Passion is staying in the area for a crew change this week.

Below is a selection of tunes from the now destroyed Pacific Gold Studios in Rabaul:
