An Australian volunteer who was doing whatever volunteers do in PNG.
I was there for 2 years until Dec 2005 .. I hope I made the most of it.

You Know You're In PNG When ...

... you're in a nation-wide bank and notice their in-house advertising for a bonus savings account saying "Looking for ways to reach your goals faster?". Underneath is a cartoon of a man blowing up an enormous balloon with a big "K" on the side. Attached to the top of the balloon are tags with savings goals written on them; "Personal Goals", "Air Fares", "School Fees" and "Bride Price".

Reading this while in the queue the other day made me remember, somethings just aren't the same as home.
