2/20 – 2/21

Another day at sea (576 miles) brought us to Madang, Papua New Guinea. In Madang we took an excellent ship tour. The tour began with a visit to their Culture Center followed by a trip to Bilbil Village. The village was very interesting. We saw some of the local dancing and singing as well as checking out the houses and local crafts. Next the tour went to the sulfur springs. We drove to the Coast Watcher’s Monument/Lighthouse which memorialized the brave coast watchers during the war. Lastly we visited the local craft market and local park.
