Papua New Guinea

Insecurity in PNG ( Papua New Guinea )

Un pais fascinante, Papua Nueva Guinea


As I wrote in previous articles there is a tremendous lack of information of the country, sometimes encouraged by the same companies that want to take advantage of this, as travel agencies.


The backpackers or backpackers are counted on the fingers of one hand. Ask the hundreds of Australians who visit the country how much paid for his trip to Papua New Guinea and will be carried out as travelers. We still believe that it is a country of witches and cannibals, but these events are isolated. More than 40 years which became the Church to the country and its inhabitants are very believers and proud to be Catholic or Orthodox.

I had several disagreements in the country, but none of them worry too much, the most common are young pickpockets, I tried to remove the flash of trouser pocket and open back backpack, but they are genuine amateur, do not use violence or weapons fire or white, in any other tourist town, for example Barcelona, You undress completely without realizing. They are real professionals.

Anyway just the day I had a small disagreement before my departure from the country. Rushed towards my camera a guy, but I always have it with neck strap, had nothing to do. While he rushed towards the camera a photo shot, I have posted it below. Stories that explain about the capital are horrible, but don't you miss intimidate.
Another singing is the abuse of gender, Unfortunately this problem is widespread across the country.
