What do you know about my country, Papua New Guinea?
What facts do you know about Papua New Guinea (PNG)? Tell me what you know about my country.
I have family who have visited Papua New Guinea so I know it's a nice place, that being said, the topic of cannibalism is still comes to mind when I hear Papua New Guinea.
Unfortunately, much of what you read about Papua New Guinea (PNG) in the media is usually sensationalized. Take a recent article in the Daily Star UK which described the country as “where cannibals make soup from genitals and eat human brains raw.” T
I do not know any recent facts. My dad was stationed in New Guinea during WWII, so all the stories I have heard were dated back in the mid 1940's. Mosquitoes, lots of rain, roads were washed away...I am sure it has changed a bunch since then.
That's great to hear. Where exactly was your father stationed?
I am not real sure- He mentioned New Guinea, San Fernando, Luzon and the Philippines in his stories he. He was there I believe from Mar 1944 to at least Sept 1945 maybe a little longer. If you look under my hubs, I did a story about him in the War.
I know it's tropical and not far from where I live in the Philippines, but closer to the equator.
I know it exists on one of the largest islands in the world amongst the islands of Indonesia.
In the 1930s, 3 Australian gold prospectors, who happened to be brothers, stumbled upon a new group of people, the Melpa. It was captured on video.
