Dear reader March 16, 2015 Papua New Guinea is a remote place. There are no coffee shops, gas stations, or city lights. Tropical trees and vegetation are visible as far as the eye could see. Bananas hanging freely from the branches ready to be picked. Sound of tall grass swaying by the wind. The cold river water brings growth to all that comes in contact with.

Fuzzy Wuzzies Angels (locals) have a simple method of living. One method is you farm what you eat. If you don’t work, you don’t eat. Rain is one source that provides growth for the crops that the locals grow. According to what I saw they are hard working individuals. They may wear torn shirts, dirty pants, and have no shoes, but if I could describe them in one word it would be high-minded tribe. They make you feel right at home. Even though they don’t have much they’ll give you the best of what they have.

Education is a must for these villagers. Healthcare is a necessity because of the sickness that is caused by malaria. Malaria is common in Papua New Guinea due to the lack of mosquito nets found in the villages. It is also a pain to treat when there may or may not be a trained doctor near by. They have the basic need of clothing, and shelter, and also the longing for water during the dry season.
