Kavieng, Papua New Guinea

Kavieng, Papua New Guinea

We anchored just off the Nusa Resort, a beautiful place with lots of birds.    The Australian owners have done a great job of making this a dream sort of place.   I've really admired how these people come in to a place and can envision not only the resort, its decor, but how to make it work under some pretty tough circumstances.

This is a hornbill.

As usual, the market is where we get most of our fresh goods.    Throughout PNG and Solomons, the markets trade heavily in betel nut and tobacco leaves.

Cruiser notes:   Kavieng was pretty dirty.   The people were generally friendly, especially on Sunday when they would stop to chat with us.    Anchorage position:  02 35.13S; 150 46.90E.
