Down to the river...to play

Today (Monday, June 8th) is the queen’s birthday and since PNG is a commonwealth country we have this day off work.  We decided to go to the river and play.  We took this chance to wash the truck and do a little swimming and playing in the water. 

 

There is a village across the river and we saw several people wading across.  Some would roll up their pants and carry their shoes with them so they wouldn’t get wet.

 

On our way back home (about 1 ½ miles) we saw a couple men carrying bundles of kunai grass.  They use it to make roofs on their houses.  We saw a boy pushing an old tire with sticks.  Many of the kids don’t have store bought toys so they make their own.
