Papua New Guinea Independence celebrations in full throttle

I just caught a bus to work which drove past the University of PNG, and I got off at the Sir John Guise Stadium, when I saw thousands of people there.

Papua New Guineans, not only in Port Moresby, but all over the country, are caught up in the excitement of the day, wearing PNG t-shirts and caps, as well as showing a strong spirit of patriotism reminiscent of 30th Independence celebrations in 2005.

The country’s new television station (refer to story below) will be launched by Prime Minister Sir Michael Somare in Wewak later today.
