Papua New Guinea Christmas – thoughts on a Christmas Past

Written By: Gael - Dec• 28•14

gael & ron's magic (217)All you need in the tropics for a good time at Christmas is a hole in the ground layered with hot rocks (which were heated up over an open fire), banana leaves, ten chickens, 20 pounds of kaukau (sweet potato) and sundry vegetables, more banana leaves, more hot rocks, then a covering of dirt to form an outdoor oven.

Add in friends who are far from their Canadian homes and families and who have traveled from all over New Guinea to converge on our highland home. With that you have the makings of an unforgettable feast and a rip-roaring good time.

Merry Christmas to all!
