The times they are a changin'

They times they are a changin’…at least in the Eastern Highlands province of Papua New Guinea as a result of climate change.

The mango tree in this picture has never borne fruit before, given the cool highlands climate, however, has done so recently in something reminiscent of warmer, coastal climates.

The people in the photo are mother Joan Kume with baby Jonathan Thurston (named after the Aussie rugby league star?), husband Derek Kume and daughter Martha. 

They are from Modia village in Kere, Chimbu province, but are long-term residents at Fruitgate in Asaro.

This picture was taken in February 2009.
