Matupit Meri

Chapter 42 continues.

A Girl and Her Volcano.

Day off work so I thought I'd drive to the base of the volcano and get some action shots... well the landscape had changed since I was last there and the ash had changed things a little, so I ended up getting close to Matupit Village. I stopped and asked the kids for directions and they jumped in the car and said we will show you the way, and they did.

Despite giving them a lift, I got no discount at the gate...

So at the base of the volcano, the young blonde kids of Matupit set up their wares and tried to sell me some trinkets and some braid prais shell money. Being a sucker for braid prais shell money I made a purchase and then decided to take a few photos of the volcano and the vendors.

Despite photos of big steaming volcanos up close... dear reader, you get a picture of a cute Tolai girl from Matupit. She told me her name but mi lus tingting.

@soren - Thanks Jake, photo taken with my 35mm macro. I experimented around a little with lenses. Did the lens exchange in the car as we were getting dusted with ash from the volcano at the time.

She is so pretty and her smile is stunning - my first thought was - "she must have a very healthy diet" then I realised that I am assuming there is poor dental care in PNG.

@kittikat - very poor dental health care in PNG especially if you start eating the dreaded nut.
