Checked luggage

PNG just makes you laugh sometimes.  Like when Brian was in the airport in Port Moresby (the capital city) yesterday as he was returning from his trip to Buka.  At the luggage carousel he saw this bunch of freshly-picked taro going round and round with all the suitcases.  He had to snap a photo.  It’s not uncommon to see bush knives (machetes) or coolers as checked luggage either.  It’s common in PNG culture to send a visitor away with a gift of food, so that probably explains the taro.  It’s just not something you would see in the U.S.
