First overnight stay with our wasfamili

Carrying our pillows, sheets, mosquito nets, and lantern we set out for our wasfamili's village, which was about a 20 minute walk.
It was almost dark by the time we got there. There is no lingering dusk in PNG, which was a big adjustment for us. When it reaches 6:30pm it is suddenly dark because PNG is so close to the equator.
Wasmama cooking our supper.
After supper, and the kids went to bed, we visited for awhile. We needed to make a kinship chart (family tree), and got as far back as the forefather of their clan. We asked about "tumbuna" stories, (stories passed on from their grandparents).
