Unscheduled Stop

The flight from Port Moresby to Kikori (see Palms of Kikori, PNG) usually makes two stops: Baimuru and Kerema.  On one trip flying back from Kikori, the plane made an unscheduled stop in a small village in the middle of the forest.  As we were circling to land, a small crowd formed at the edge of the landing strip. I took this photo from inside the plane. [NOTE: My colleague, Andrew Henderson, was fascinated by the whole encounter because several of the people appeared to be dressed as palms].
