Pictures of our first month in Papua New Guinea

Thanks to the good folks at the Ropopo Plantation & Resort near Kokopo, PNG, we have enough internet to get a few photos uploaded. Hooray! Kinda makes me want to stay here another day, but we need to keep moving. Having a schedule doesn’t suit us well but it’s well worth the upside of meeting a friend… in December, in Indonesia. Yep, time to get headed west!

For now, enjoy the photos. There’s a full set here on Flickr, and a few of my favorites below.

  1. Hi Behan,
    I noticed that Julie Toby’s little girl is wearing a cord around her neck. Do you know if that has any significance?

    While working with Haitian migrant workers in the DR, I kept noticing red cords on babies and asked about it. They wore them to ward off evil spirits or to keep other mothers from coveting their babies…


    p.s. I agree about the cooking lessons. (: What a great way to interact and get to know each other! It takes the focus off of the material and places it more on relationship building.
