Having to go to Madang for work has its perks too. In addition to being absolutely beautiful, I can go into the city and shop in various stores and the market too. Even after a year and a half I am still finding foods that I have never seen before or tried. I saw these at the market so I brought some back to share with the V-berg boys.
I don’t know what they are called but the inside is soft, sticky, sweet and delicious. J and W taught me how to peel back the skin and eat the inside around the seed.
In addition to coastal foods, Madang is a great place to enjoy swimming. I miss being in the water while i’m in Ukarumpa. But in Madang there are pools to swim in at some of the resorts around town. And of course the ocean is close at hand.
