Papua New Guinea Local Customs: 30 reviews and 31 photos

  This, I didn't EVEN attempt...!
by jadedmuse

We were treated by one of the villagers, showing us how he makes fire.

It was like something out of the film "The Gods Must Be Crazy".....

Of course when I tried to make fire that way, we could have sat there all day waiting for a tiny column of smoke to appear!

It's safe to say this guy had a lot more practice "making fire" than I did....
