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.

Well today is the Papua New Guinea Independence Day. I spent the 30th anniversary at home, venturing outdoors in the morning to discover what was happening. I found a vibrant atmosphere with the colours of the country being worn, painted and flying. The patriotism was impressive.

I will tell the story with pictures.

The flags of the nation

New Ireland man

Proud students

Kavieng laplaps

Pikinini bilong Finschafen

Cool Simbu mama knows how to hit a kundu ... with a thong

Patriotism taken to the next level

The whiteies with the drums and trumpets were a hit
