I love the jumping men. reminds me of the leaping nuns of Norwich (Peter Cook et al). Cameroon girl is just beautiful but little boy? man – is he just a little bald man or a prematurely aged child? Anyway,the whole festival gave you some wonderful photo opportunites and must be a huge colourful gathering. Rehana my artist friend is now overwhelmed with stuff to paint.

Love Wozzer.

they reminded me of the jumping jews of jerusalem (from Blackadder I). The boy-man was a boy who had the top of his head shaved and the cuttings glued to his chin. They were hilarious. Look forward to seeing Rehana’s work – if it’s anything like Shaun’s art it will be brilliant.
@ Les – yes back in Madang for a while

I like Chimbu Man.

What to say? Fantastic is overused but appropriate. Are you spending more time back at base camp now?
