This afternoon (and evening) we had a graduation celebration for our first literacy class. The main event was a “mumu” with local produce and the meat we brought back from Goroka. The afternoon started with cooking the rocks.

Then Wes handed out certificates to all the graduates.

Finally, we uncovered the mumu for feasting.


All the graduates:

And us, the Jonses and the students who dressed up:
