Home is Where you Hang Your Bilum

i'm so excited to show you our home! looking at the picture makes me miss it...


{home sweet home}

the houses in the lowlands are made with bamboo wall, limbum floors and kunai grass roofs. when it rains it pours in PNG and our house never leaked a bit. we had 3 rooms inside plus a small storage area tht will be used as a houskuk (kitchen) when our waspapa moves in. we did all of our cooking outside under the porch over a fire. our Papa lives in the house on the right but this is his new house. He was planning to move in after we left.
on a typical day a big mama pig would be under the house with her 3 piglets plus 2 wild piglets, several chickens, a cat and a couple of dogs. the goat lived behind us. and i don't care what anybody tells you- roosters do NOT crow at dawn- they go at it all night. but after a week or so it's really not that bad...it actually became comforting in a way...
