Here in Papua New Guinea we are just below the Equator. No wonder it's so hot! We received a shore-side Papuan welcome.
There are over 700 tribes here, and as many languages!
Our tour today gave us the opportunity to meet some of the people who live here, to get a glimpse of their daily lives and to hear about their past and their culture.
We stopped by Sanderson Bay and heard about some of the World War 2 history.
We drove up to Top Town Lookout.
Crystal guests brought pencils and stickers for the kids.
Back down at the shore and the World War 2 Memorial. Allied troops here gave the Japanese their first land defeat.
Students at the Cameron Secondary School gave us a tour of their campus.
Women demonstrated their weaving techniques.
Fearsome body paint and frightening poses - these hunter warriors danced and screamed between young ladies that seemed to represent trees and bushes.
The Town Market was a busy place.
