A few photos from my recent trip

Recommended Posts

Most of you know I was away for a while with my girls in PNG, so thought I'd add a few photos.  We were in the Milne Bay area of PNG which is where a lot of the big WW2 battles were fought, so a lot of interesting things to see, as well as the traditional dancers and the beautiful scenery.

Did you take them a gift of spam when you visited.  New Guinea and environs used to be big on Cargo Cult stuff.

It looks lovely there.

No Smiley, the cargo cult thing is pretty much worn out in PNG, however in Vanuatu on the island of Tanna there is a huge village that still believes in cargo cult and they worship a man called John Frum (which is thought to be John from .....) who gave them some gifts many many years ago and said he'd be back.  It's actually a really interesting village and I've spent time there with the Chief as one of our waitresses came from the village and we were invited to visit.
