Papua New Guinea

I was lucky enough to accompany a good friend when he returned to Papua New Guinea, but for a somber occasion.

His great-grand father has passed away two years earlier and we ventured to the pacific island for a three-day feast for the unveiling of his headstone in a remote village about 50km north of Port Moresby.

The images below feature independence celebrations at a local school in Hohola, and images from the feast and ceremony.
