Port Moresby

Port Moresby has been a formative place for me since 2009, during which I spent between three and four months living in the Holiday Inn and working with the good people at PNGSDP. Maria joined me on one trip and we stayed the weekend. Rupa kindly drove us on winding steep roads out of town, past the deeply sobering Australian War Memorial to Owers Corner; the start of the Kokoda track. We participated in a walk against corruption, and took in what we could of Port Moresby. Certainly not our leisure destination of choice, but an important experience in shaping our view of the world.
