Interview with Andrew Narie – Papua New Guinea
Andrew Narie is 30 years old and works in a tour company (Trans Niugini Tours). We met him and his wife Jacinta in the Rondon Ridge Lodge in Mount Hagen, Papua New Guinea. This country is one of the most culturally diverse countries on Earth. According to recent data, 841 different languages are listed for the country.
Andrew is the lodge manager and Jacinta is assisting him. Being the only guests at that moment in time, we had the chance to talk a lot, and we enjoyed our nice conversations during dinner. Conversations about the things that matter in life, to hold on to them and to fight for them… It was a wonderful way to learn more about the local culture and lifestyle. That’s why I was very keen to include Andrew in our 6vitesse-on-tour interview project.
