We’ve shown a bunch of pictures of houses here in PNG, but I realized we haven’t shown much of what they look like inside. So to remedy that, here’s the inside of one house. This is pretty typical from what we’ve seen and heard. There is usually a bamboo platform that serves as a bed lining the walls (often in a horseshoe shape) and a fire place* in the middle. This could be the house of a single family, but often it would be for extended family and any guests. Everybody sleeps close to one another around the bed. If there is a word for “privacy” in Pidgin, we haven’t learned it yet.
*By “fire place” I mean only, a place for a fire.
