Solomon Islands 017
In 2004 I traveled with the Australian Defense Force to the Solomon Islands to document a band - The TommyFlowers - who were to play a series of small concerts for the Armed Forces who were stationed there trying to calm the conflict.
There were small forces from about 12 small pacific nations all working together to keep the peace and better the quality of life in the Islands.
We spent about 12 days, flying around the islands in choppers, living on base (a mess tent, camo nets and weapons included), interacting with the locals, humming the theme from MASH and learning just how F***ed up the world can be, even in such a beautiful place.
