    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.

      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.
