Mount Hagen Street Scenes

The centre of town. Looks like a provincial town, even though it is the third largest centre in PNG, but teeming with people and surrounded by settlements. The highlanders are short and very friendly, but quick to anger, with a constant undercurrent of tribal tensions. These don’t impact on tourists, unless they are dumb enough to wander into the middle of a clash, but you need to be wary of opportunistic crime, as you would in many other parts of the world.
