Boris Egorov, the guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Papua New Guinea:
A cultural program has begun on the island of Papua. Today we visited three tribes, watched theatrical performances arranged especially for us. We looked into the homes of the aborigines and received detailed answers to our numerous questions about life in this country, before and after the arrival of the white man. We were well fed, and in the evening there was time for leisure. We played chess and played preference until nightfall. The rest continues. Tomorrow we will continue to explore the customs of the indigenous population, and we hope to finish our game of cards.
