Rugby league is a very popular sport in Papua New Guinea. Here are some Maroons supporters demonstrating in the street before a game. My colleague Julian Skaletsky was fortunate to be in the right place at the right moment and managed to immortalize the moment.

On top of Port Moresby

November 24, 2013

July 2013

Sur le toit de la ville

A walk over the hills surrounding the city of Port Moresby. A tough 7km walk, with many ups and downs. Luckily we did not have too much sun. But still it was quite hot, probably around the 32 degrees celsius.

Une randonnée sur les collines entourant la ville de Port Moresby. Une marche de 7km pleine de montées et de descentes. Heureusement qu’il n’y avait pas trop de soleil. Mais il faisait quand même assez chaud, probablement aux alentours des 32 degrés.
