After my 5-days long work visit to Sentani, Papua (Irian Jaya), Indonesia, I decided to add one extra day to explore the area. While urban housing, fields and plantation trees covered the foothills leading up to the larger mountains and jungle to the north, it seemed that behind every tree a church was hiding. On my way through the jungle to a waterfall, I met up with a small group of Papua boys. They brought their lunch in the form of a living young chick. While they enjoyed the water and showed of their diving skills, smoking their self-made cigar, the little chick patiently waited only to be roasted for lunch. This series is a selection of my Papua impressions.
