14 09 2015

On saturday I travelled to Marau upon invited to the Bougainville Hardliners by the Chief of the area for the awareness program they started in Arawa a week ago.

Marau or Sunset Market was started 5 months ago as told to me by the Security Peter Kamung, he was the first and former security of Arawa main market. I really enjoyed eating all kinds of local food.It was similar to the Buin Market, it happens every saturdays.
