Raw food photo shoot

When I was taking pictures of the mumu preparations, the people enjoyed it so much that I was taken around to at least 10 different mumu pits and instructed to take photos of all the people holding food in various combinations. Then I would show them the resulting picture on the back of our digital camera. They loved it! And then they would tell me to take more pictures. So now I have waaaaay more pictures of raw meat than I’ll ever need. I thought I’d share with you some of them, since the villagers were really thrilled with the idea that their pictures would go back to America, and that the people in America would luksave (know by seeing) the kinds of foods that Papua New Guineans eat. So here are a few photos of people holding yams, sweet potatoes, pumpkins, greens, various kinds of raw meat and even pig intestines. Yum!

Oh yes – many people asked about the pigs’ blood tapioca in the last post. Yes, they do cook it, and no, we haven’t tried it yet!
