To find a partner ?? in Highlands of PNG

One of the interesting facts of Papua New Guinea is that there are more than 800 languages in the country, and so the culture is very much different.

In Highlands, the culture and life is totally different from the coastal people.
The photo is the courting ceremony of Chimbu people in Highlands of PNG.
In the olderen days, young boys and girls did not have chance to meet each other.
So the group of boys used to visit other village to meet the young girls, get togther, sit down next to each other, and dance until morning - traditional Disco !! - to find the future bride.

You can visit one of the tribes living near Goroka, and see the ceremony, or you may jump into the group and find the future partner ??
