Like for you to meet the Chimbo tribe in PNG.....

The one in Red is the big chief...for 20 + years he was the foot police for Australia when they

owned Papua New Guinea....his tribe of Chimbo's of about 3,000 are scattered all down the

valley, his son Kim was my friend and host....the other men are village officials....the two women

sitting down in front are the village "criers"....when I arrived with Kim they cried....when I left

they cried....has something to do with tridition...like glad your here and sad your leaving....

post-300-0-23503800-1343401076_thumb.jpg

In the lower pic is mostly family and trusted officials (also family) with the chief's son Kim standing

on my left....Kim had another brother who was a judge in town (150 miles away)....Kim also

had five wives in five different villages....

The hut in the background is called the "hause man) or man house....it's where all the men sleep

if they want to and the women are only allowed to enter for meetings and cook for the men at

night over coals in pits in the dirt floor.....if a woman enters the "hause man" while she is in her

period they kill her....

Got my one mile walk in today since the rain hasn't started yet.....thought maybe you would like to

see the "free hospital" that I've mentioned before.....here is the frontpost-300-0-96351200-1358937482_thumb.jpgup

on the right side behind the red car....a blue "ear" is a public telephone in front of the emergency

entrance....

Just around the corner is where the line normally forms starting at 0400 but today no crowds in

front or here in the rear.....post-300-0-34084200-1358937494_thumb.jpg

Reason no line is the free hospital is closed July-Dec-Jan because that's vacation time.....if your

sick enough to be brought in by car or ambulance then you get to use the front at the emergency

entrance.....waiting there is usually between an hour (seldom) and half a day (normal)....

Garimpo... Thanks for the photos. What happens if you get sick when they are on vacation? Go to another town? What about prescription drugs? are they free too?

Steve if your sick enough they have one Doc on duty....if you can find him.....other than that go to any of about a

dozen Doc's at the regular hospital and pay them $180.00-$200.00 for a office visit....after you wait for half a day...

The drug store's here used to be a fair price and you didn't need a prescription except to get what the Doc order

for you....then about 8 years ago the Doc's got smart and adopted many ideas from their American Doc buddies....

now a prescription is necessary for most anything....also Doc's don't generally give shots....the Doc writes a

prescription ($200.00) and then you take that to the drug store of your choosing...about 20 in this small town....

then you pay them for the meds and they give you the shot.....

Garimpo-- Just wondering if one can get prescription drug insurance to cover big ticket cancer drugs. That's really my main concern....The availibility of prescription drug plans for Central- South American countries. Panama,Costa Rica, and many others.

A lot of different veggies and fruits here. This is the Jabuticaba tree that has the fruit growing out of the skin of the tree.

This is the first part it starts as a cluster of very little fuzzy stuff....

2014-09-13001.jpg

out of that then comes the fruit but if it's green don't eat it...

2014-09-13002.jpg

Now when the fruit is black it's ready for a good treat....it has one seed and a lot of pulp that is very good.

Those berries sure do taste great. Looks weird growing from the bark, but still great
