Port Moresby PNG

Well we’ve been here for a few days so far, sadly Port Morsby is more of a commercial port than anything else. Tourist attractions are limited and according to some its a bit like the OK Coral outside of the Yacht Club.

Me and Brian had already walked into the center of town before we found out from somebody in the club that a lot of car jackings happen !! The town was dirty, smelly and generally disgusting. The only nice buildings were those owned by the few banks there. Loads of people just hung around the streets chewing and spitting out Betelnut, this is something that makes your mouth, teeth and lips go bright red and then they spit it out all over the floor. This is normally used by the tribal people to give them energy before hours of ritual dancing, unfortunaly it is now abused by lots of people coming into the city from the country areas.
