Video of Yonki, 1979-1983.

Thought this might interest people. I grew up in Yonki, went to Kassam Swiss Mission school. We have videos of the area at this time (with us in it!), and Yonki before the new dam went in. Possibly some of the only footage of how it was. Will start sorting it out soon and will let people know when some has been uploaded for all to enjoy, may see some old Wantoks amongst them!

I will put it on Youtube and then post links in this forum.

Sound good?

Third video, now looking at the main offices in Yonki, some of our old Wantok's, and then on the road to the Hydro Power Station.

Looking back at Yonki from the hill where the medical centre was (maybe still there?). Some of the land to the right will be under water now I'm sure.

Looking from Yonki to the medical centre, and over to the engineering workshops that were part of the Yonki Hydro Power scheme.

Footage from the security post as you enter Yonki, and some of the locals who were there in 1982!

Views around Kassam, see if you recognize anyone! This is my old school, and I am the kid who does not want to be videoed!

I see my old friends, the Zimmerman's, amongst others. List anyone you know of and what they are doing these days.

Cheers,
