Product description

Product Description

Papua New Guinea and Asia, have forever held a magnetic attraction for Australians and New Zealenders wishing to add some spice and color to their lives.
This Author has done it all: commencing with a wild childhood in western Queensland after WW 11, onto the Mines in the Queensland bush, then to the Papua New Guinea mines and road construction sites, finally to the Philippines with side shows in the USA and Mexico. In 70 years he has been there and done most of it.
Running afoul of police on four continents: Rascals in Papua New Guinea, Communist Rebels and corrupt military factions in the Philippines. He managed to survive and to retire at 70 years old to the Island of Mindanao in the restive southern Philippines, where he now lives with his wife of 3o years.
This eBook is a collection of 57 short nonfiction stories of incidents he experienced throughout that long period.
There are no fanciful inclusions or exaggerations here: as it happened; so too it was written.
If you have ever had the desire to go, but not the opportunity: now is your chance. Come there with me through the pages of the “A Bamboo Aussie” experience what I experienced, without getting your self locked up or shot up or threatened with instant execution as I did. The thrills and excitement without the heat the pain or the hardships.
Welcome to Asia.
