Dry Season

PNG has only 2 seasons. Wet and dry. We are definitely in the dry
season now and it has not rained in about 2 weeks. There is usually a
lot of bush fires during this time. People take this chance to burn the
thick kunai grass to prepare the grounds for a new garden or sometimes
just... well, I'm not sure why they do it.

Some of you may think "why do they need firewood in PNG?" Well, dry
season is also our winter and mornings are sometimes cool and it's nice
to have a fire. It is also the way we heat our water on overcast days.
