PAPUA NEW GUINEA, a tour of its disappointing capital of PORT MORESBY



hello this is back welcome to my channel and thank you for viewing my videos today I'm in the exotic country of Papua New Guinea here in the Pacific Ocean and I mean the capital of this country Port Moresby now what Moresby has a horrible reputation and this is why not too many tourists visit this place that could be really exciting if one could use common sense so I've been here for the last couple of days I've been walking around this capital city and I have been videotaping some of the sides for you to see now keep in mind these are sites from what they call the town with a capital T this is because this is the centre of Port Moresby which is really quite huge and it spans quite a few square kilometers so here are few views of the sites around Port Moresby the center of Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea this is what I have experienced for the last couple of days ago and I want to share all these experiences with you this is vic enjoy what's coming up and here's the main attraction in Port Moresby and that is Ella Beach ela Beach not exactly the most beautiful beach in the world it is full of seaweed and rubbish and you can see some local kids swimming right there in the distance you will not see any tourists here there is a playground here at the beach and there is this rather curious steam engine all rusty here at the beach apparently for the kids to play at there it is and here's the rest of the playground completely destroyed you can see a little baby there crawling all by himself right there nobody around so here's the playground here's the beach you can see quite a few kids swimming in this not very clean and healthy water right there here are some views of Port Moresby you can see it's built on Hills the beach is right behind me here's a good view of a part of the city here and here's a view of the of an abandoned building here at the beach and here's the market at the beach you can see this fellow to my left here getting ready to sell also here's a brave tourist jogging this is it guys this is culture in Papua New Guinea and here are some incredible images you can see people actually barbecuing what seems to be pork is it pork or chicken Leblon lamb okay I get I stand corrected this is land they're probably posing okay thank you let's continue our incredible tour I'm causing quite a stir here's the rest of the market with more barbecuing taking place just down there Wow and this curious of the structure of the theater the lack of a better term is at the beach I guess that we called the several events here some events here

the frame and here's beach volley to see quite a few youngsters sticking around watching the the game going on that's another one right there now I am going down to that water slide which is at the end of Ella Beach the northern end of the of the beach and we're going to have to cross the gate of this kids here so what are you doing you're cleaning the beach where's the garbage that you collected no the garbage was always there apparently i cleaning the beach and they're asking for money anyway let's go through so what are you doing holding the gate here you look after the gate in
