One of Neil's friends went to the Goroka Festival, a premier cultural event in the PNG Highlands; he described it as interesting & allowed me to use some of his photos.

Most of these do not have a caption; as I wasn't at the festival I am as much a spectator as you.  It's interesting that multiple beverage companies sponsor the event - Coca Cola, SP (PNG's beer) & Nescafe - all appear below.

Coca Cola

Safety is not a big factor in PNG

A great photo - very colorful
