People in Papua New Guinea (PNG) were all very friendly. Everybody smiled.

Port Moresby, the capital of PNG is a busy city with a population of about 400,000. Apparently it is not a very safe city, I didn't walk around much.

I saw a few of the local villages, fishing villages around Port Moresby, villages in the interior rely on their own agriculture. Tourism is not very widespread.

A lot of transportation is on rivers and by air, many areas don't have long distance roads.
