You name the country and its the same scenario. My home is Mangagoy on Mindanao, a place many avoid for the same reasons they might avoid PNG. Negative press. I had trouble once in 10 years and it cost me a pair of cowboy boots and a rather long motorcyle ride home barefooted.

Personally, I dont have any fears of the raskols in PNG. My fear is boredom. I havent been there yet but my feeling is that I wont need to fear either.
