    Children playing along the river banks

    by jadedmuse Updated Jul 19, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Apparently the natives hold the croc in high regard, but the children are allowed to frolic along the river banks without a thought as to possible croc attacks....we often saw the kids splashing right along the shoreline, waving to us or playing in the water.

    When they knew were were coming to their village, the kids would scamper up the shore and advise the locals of our arrival.

    Crocodile Canoes

    by jadedmuse Updated Jul 19, 2004

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Sepik people hold the crocodile in high regard, and the croc is the prevailing symbol throughout the Sepik region (more on this in my Yentchan pages).

    The canoes are even carved to resemble this ferocious animal.

    Cargo flies Coach!

    Don't be surprised to find a branch of bananas or a huge bag of sweet potatoes occupying the seat next to you in the plane - or maybe at your feet in the aisle.

    When you're taking small cargo planes to and from the different areas, it seems to be a free-for-all!
