To me, this image typifies what PNG is all about.
A couple of families out in their dug outs at sunset to wave goodbye to us after our 2 week sortie around the Bizmark Sea. Over that time we covered over 1,000 nm and used 27,000 litres of fuel and we saw a huge diverse range in the culture and heritage of the different areas of PNG.
One thing remains a constant up there and that is that they are all so welcoming and genuinely happy to see us.
As you can see in the canoe image, the boys above are spraying them all with water and that small activity was keeping the families amused for quite a while.
Laughter and smiles are common place up there and I never tire of watching them watching us!
