I've never been to Port Moresby, I am not willing to on what I've heard in the news and on websites. So yeah sounds like fun going there, getting robbed, your dog getting eaten in your face, and getting cut by a machete!

High rate oh HIV infection.
Beautiful country just a shame that it has gone the way it has.
Corruption is the main reason that the nation is so dangerous.
Gang rape of women white, black or yellow is pretty common

I was counting hundred dollar bills and nobody even batted an eye. Port Moresby is very safe and the police is well equipped.

I did also witness a robbery of a tourist van that then crashed into a bus stop, full of smokers with my brother Hugh Janis.
