Jellybean 33 with Anne Creaton

Bula!
So Anne Creaton is knee deep in Fiji.
Knee deep in another culture.
Knee deep in Government Bureaucracy.
Knee deep in the most beautiful water in the world.
What a woman!
I worked with Anne a few years ago when she helped start up the Ambulance embedded aeromedical service called Adult Retrieval Victoria in Melbourne.
That wasn’t hard enough for her. So she headed off to Fiji to try to bring some of what she had learned to the Pacific.
Now I don’t know what you know about Fiji. It is an incredibly interesting place with an incredibly interesting mix of people.I know that I don’t know enough about the history of Fiji, the story of native Fijians and indo-fijians, “Indentured Labour” and the relatively recent political complexity/instability. I am willing to bet that out of the few of us that have visited Fiji 99% will have visited the 3 biggest islands or a resort island. There are 330 islands in Fiji and about 500 islets. It is the biggest and most developed of the remote independent pacific island nations. It has the biggest campus of the fascinating University of the South Pacific and a newer second University of Fiji.

There also exists something called Pacific Time or Fiji Time.

(“It’s Time, Jim, but not as we know it.”)

Anne is humble about what she is trying to do but I am less reserved. I looked at doing something like Anne is doing about 15 years ago. I wasn’t brave enough. She was.

Heres a few questions for you; What does the Australasian College of Emergency Medicine (ACEM)do outside Australia and New Zealand? Should they do more? Have you ever heard of their Special Interest Group called IEMN?

Have a listen and get in touch with Anne if you want to know more. @AnneCreaton

Thanks again to @rollcagemedic for offering to do some #Jellybeans in #Chicago

I am resetting the Jellybean numbers to fit with @sandnsurf and @precordialthump at www.LifeintheFastLane.com so this is called Jellybean 33. I’ll rename the others later.

So.... you see the little dots in the middle of the white line where the Typhoon will probably be on early Saturday am? That’s The Yaeyama Islands. That’s where we are. That’s where we will be early Saturday am. Mmmmm #typhoon

I’ve never seen a jet pass by this close at cruising altitude. I thought they usually travelled in the opposite direction at a significantly different altitude? Is that a #nearmiss

@wanderingsootball I used to travel with Sluggy all the time. He still comes on many trips but he is less of an exhibitionist these days. Or maybe he just didn’t want to steal all the limelight. I don’t know. He doesn’t talk much. But somehow I feel that Kuro and Sluggy might get on. He’s made of slugginess and slime. He’s not made of soot but he is a big fan of Spirited Away. Am I right in assuming that Kuro is in fact one of the very talented soot ball actors from the scenes in the boiler room with Kamaji, the Boilerman?

My mate Gerry. A winemaker and wine thief #extraordinaire Here clambering among French oak at @willowcreekvineyard in ninja like fashion ( the equally agile @mammoth_wine might be concerned about her bringing a knife to a gun-fight! ) thanks to @mpplunge for a great day.
