Unusual week for us in Kovol, it was vasectomy week. I quickly need to say we weren’t the ones doing (or getting!) them. We hired a family planning doctor from Goroka to come for 4 days and provide vasectomies free of charge for the men who want them.

The campaign trail

It’s election time in PNG. Passions can run high, candidates hit the campaign trail and the highway fills with buses decked out with campaign posters and loudspeakers. That’s how we’ve experienced things before (in town), but with the date for voting drawing closer, nothing much was happening here in the bush.
