Thankyou '61' for taking the time to write back to my questions and comments. You explained it very well. I knew about the strong triabal ties, but hadn't considered the evolution from moka (hadn't heard of te'e).

Politics is certainly completely different in Enga.

I was suprised to hear you say most Engans are uneducated, because I was suprised by the level of education, not only in Enga, but all PNG. I, like many people in first world countries have the false assumption that there is a correlation between education and living conditions. It amazed me to see that a beautiful woman, looking and behaving like any other secretary around the world lives without running water and showers in a freezing cold waterfall. I'm embarrased by how ignorant I have been, and still am.



assume that people living with no running water or electricity wouldn't people live in very basic conditions with no running water or electricity.
