Hallo Jason, Nice job on the site. Seems to have sparked a common cord with everyone who visited and lived in this special place. Nice picture of us with the mountain backdrop. Funny how the quality of the photograph goes up dramatically whenever I am IN the shot. Best regards to all.

Having grown up in Tembagapura, I could not have asked for a better childhood. The jungle was my back yard and it was all I had ever known. Tembagapura was a place that I knew every single nook and cranny, but there was always plenty more to explore. Growing up with my family and an abundance of friends in such a care free environment has made me realize what a special place it was. My friends today cannot even grasp or begin to imagine Tembagapura. The diversity and environment are a combination found nowhere else on the globe. I cannot describe the whole experience of living in Tembagapura because it is my background and I feel as if it is always with me. I know that living there has given me a greater view of this world and how to live in it.
