Yesterday, Gertrude and I went to a special program at the local primary school. There were the usual cultural songs and dances. What made this time special was that I had opportunity to meet Sir Julius Chan. He has known Gertrude for many years because of her work with the Sursurunga. He was very happy to see Gertrude again after so many years and to meet me. We were able to have a few minutes with him to visit with him during lunch before he left. Gertrude asked him if it was true that he ate a noni a day for his health. In fact it was true. He says you begin to get used to its bitter taste. It took Gertrude the longest time just to get me to drink the noni juice. That will be good enough for me.
He is currently governor of New Ireland and has been the Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea. You can read more about him at Wikipedia.org
