From Cairns I flew to Port Moresby the capital of Papua New Guinea. Port Moresby has the dubious honor of often ranking as one of the most dangerous cities in the world and surprisingly one of the most expensive expensive cities in the world.
I spent a couple of days taking photographs of very friendly people. They locals did however warn me to be wary of every other man, woman or child. Most buildings were behind walls topped with razor wire, and my “budget” family hotel the Ponderosa sent a security guard around with me when I hired a taxi driver for the day. I guess you should always be prepared, but like I said I was pretty much always met with smiles.
