Hi - I am fascinated with Papua New Guinea. Is this a country you'd recommend visiting and why? Or, why not?
We are going in Sept and hope to say at least 2 months, longer if we can extend our visas. Fascinating culture, gorgeous snorkeling / diving, WWII relics. Some parts of the mainland are subject to violent crime (the cities primarily) and people may want to scare you off- but we hear the outer islands are stunning. Check out Kavieng, I've heard excellent reports from friends who spent time there.

I run Papua New Guinea's (PNG) most popular political blog. There are a wide range of links on my blog, The Garamut, which you can click on and find out more information about PNG - including information on culture and the lifestyle of our people. Here's the link:http://garamut.wordpress.com/
