BBQ a la “Mamboo” style…

Last night we ate like kings!

“Mamboo” is a style of PNG cuisine that basically involves stuffing a piece of bamboo with goodies and then throwing it on to the fire for an hour or so. Uncle Joel was staying with us for a couple of nights and last night we had a feast for dinner. One of the best things about living in the PNG Highlands is the cheap and easy access to a range and selection of vegetables that are just superb.

Whilst Eli and Uncle Joel were busy preparing dinner I pulled out my camera and captured the evidence. All photos have been posted and can be viewed in the “Gonix Street – Goroka” photo album. There’s a couple of shots of “Gelo” the dog – the newest member of our household and also a nice shot of the backyard.
