Preparing for living in the village for 5 weeks

We used to think it was a big deal getting ready for a 3 day camping trip but 5 weeks was quite a challenge.   We spent a whole day shopping at stores in Madang getting ready for our 5 weeks in the village.  Some of the things we needed to bring besides the food pictures were: mosquito nets, foam pads and sheet sets, Coleman kerosene lantern, 30 liters of kerosene, dishes, pots and pans, utensils, water containers, water filter, clothes, medicine, and lot of other things I can’t think of right now.

 

All the food we ate was made from scratch except for some crackers.  We brought 8 dozen eggs with us and found out if you turn them over every day they would last up to 5 weeks.  We had no way of keeping food cold so we everything had to be dry or in a can.
