Kainantu

A small town in the Eastern Highlands, not much here besides basic stores. It’s known as a somewhat dangerous rascol town with high unemployment. You would be wise to meet someone as you get off the bus, or head straight for the nearest store. However you can catch a PMV to a place called SIL (The Summer Institute of Linguistics) A christian based organisation that is endeavouring to translate the bible into as many languages as possible. You can go there for a look around, or use their stores which are quite well equipped. Theres also locals gold mining in the area, just ask around and you could pay someone to drive you into the hills to see their workings. There is a nice cultural center in town which sells mainly locally made pottery but also other traditional crafts, such as bilums and bows and arrows.
