New Guinea

We went on this cruise to visit New Guinea. Our first port was Alotau in the Milne Bay province on Friday 22nd November. The men went on a tour of WW2 sites and we went on a cultural tour. It was very interesting and amazing how the locals live almost completely from what they grow and catch.

On Saturday we visited Kiriwina Island. There were lots of locals selling their handmade goods and the water was so beautiful for a swim. The snorkling was good too (I didn't do it but saw the videos).

On Sunday we were in Kitava and again the locals were friendly and it was lovely to see the children singing. We donated to the schools and I had some pencils and pens to give away. The water was so clear and beautiful. We also took a boat over the the island.
