troppo ?


WTF does "troppo" mean? I've lived 25 years @ 1deg N and I still don't get it.

I know, I know...it means going tropical, so what! What does it mean exactly?


From Urban Dictionary Tuffie

'Going Troppo' is an exclusively Australian slang term for 'going crazy'. The popular understanding about it's origin is that it comes from stories of the tropical heat in the northern parts of Australia driving people crazy.What's Stevo doing? He must be going troppo!


AKA "Mango Madness". From the unrelenting heat and humidity in the "build up" before the arrival of the wet season - drives a man to drink, so I've heard. ;)

Speaking of crocs, from today's paper...

Crocodile accepts apology, frees woman

The Jakarta Post, Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara | Headlines | Tue, September 11 2012, 10:15 AM

KUPANG, East Nusa Tenggara: A swimming holiday maker says a 2-meter long crocodile that dragged her into the sea released her after she begged it for forgiveness for encroaching on its territory.

The incident happened late Sunday when Elena Parera and hundreds of other people were on an outing on the white sands of Manikin Beach, 15 kilometers east of Kupang.

Elena said that the crocodile attacked her from behind when she was swimming about 20 meters off shore.

“I felt something was pulling me down. When I turned around and realized what was happening, I screamed and apologized. It was a miracle, I was released while the crocodile swam back into the deep,” she said.

The 29-year-old was rushed to WZ Yohanes Hospital in Kupang where she received 13 stitches for serious injuries to her legs. She is in stable condition, doctors said on Monday.

An eyewitness, Yanti Parera, said she heard Elena scream in horror and watched her wave her hands to attract the attention of beachgoers.

Crocodiles are often sighted in the area. Recently, Assad Bui, a 43-year-old fisherman from Ternate, North Maluku, was critically injured in a life-or-death fight with a crocodile off Tablolong Beach.

I've got friends that share your buds Island then. They've just shifted the international airport on his rock, it's 2 hours by taxi to accomodation now.

More horse carts than cabs though.

Haven't been back to the shack for about 4 years, my wife has family staying in it.

You have my yahoo email alalmat already. Search start "mc" ;)

Went for a site visit just out of Monado in Sulawesi with the new job the other day, arrived at the camp at 23:00 with no idea of what to expect. Out of bed at 05:00 for the day in the field and this is what I found.

Hollywood site. Best I've been in since the '80s.

The second pic's from the bar, it had the same views, cheap beer, cheese platters. Great spot, an hour's drive to Manado which is really pretty Indo city. Strong Xtian area, a church every 100 yards.

I went diving at the islands just to the north of Manado 6yrs ago. Amazing amounts of wildlife - and the currents turned some of the dives into the inside of a washing machine. The most vicious downwards currents I've ever experienced. Brilliant diving.

Know anything about this?  A couple of my green friends visited there a while back, and are pretty upset about it.

Hey Grumps, this affecting you?

 

 

 

Thousands of people are evacuating their homes in Indonesia after a volcano erupted in east Java.

Mount Kelud spewed ash and debris over a large area, including the city of Surabaya, about 130km (80 miles) away.

Two people died after their houses collapsed under the weight of ash, officials said. Some towns were said to be covered by 4cm (1.6 in) of ash.

Three major airports in Surabaya, Solo and Yogyakarta were forced to shut down because of low visibility.

There are also fears that debris could damage aircraft engines.

Andi Wirson, general manager at the Yogyakarta airport, said: "The current conditions are that volcanic ash is now covering the runway, apron and tarmac. We have already measured the thickness of the volcanic ash, which is at 5cm on the runway and tarmac."
