    What the hell is a "River Truck"?!

    by jadedmuse Updated Jul 19, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I thought it was hysterical to refer to these things as "river trucks" but the more we used them, the more I came to appreciate the name.

    These flatbeds were motorized and offered the most room at the fastest speeds, affording us visitors a quick and easy (not to mention relatively dry) way to get around between villages.

    They were a bit noisy so if you have any kind of earplugs, bring them along for the ride!

    Getting To the Karawari Region

    Don't expect any real landing strips or even an airport for that matter.

    When you're heading in and out of the Sepik Region, just be glad you're boarding a plane with two wings.

    Note: rough landings ahead!!!!

    Getting around the Karawari River

    It always amazed me to see how well the locals can balance as they stand up in these narrow, carved out canoes.

    Here two women are floating down the river, probably returning from another village.

    Standard mode of transporation among the villages, where the canoes don't actually belong to any specific person, they're considered communal property of the village itself.
