PNG Independence Day



Papua New Guinea recently celebrated the 40th anniversary of their independence.  A group of 5 of us rode bikes for 4 hours ended up at lake Yonki where they were having a celebration. Groups from different villages were dressed up in traditional outfits and singing and dancing. 





The level of lake Yonki is very low due to the drought

All I had to do is pull out my camera and people would pose

These woman ask me if I would take a picture of them
