photos of Port Moresby, anyone?

I'm an anthropology student writing a thesis about expatriate life in Port Moresby. I lived in POM 1999-2001, & spent my teenage years in Lae (1983-88).

My thesis describes daily life for expatriates in terms of
- arrival/adaptation
- cross-cultural communication
- crime & security
- employment regulations
- the overlap of work and social life
- sexual relationships
- issues of home & belonging (in PNG and elsewhere)
I won't bore you with the theoretical stuff. (I plan on putting the whole thing on the web eventually. Then anyone who's interested can comment / criticize all you want).

Anyway, the writing part is nearly done, and now I'm putting together the illustrations. I took a lot of photographs myself, but am always looking for more. So here goes:

a) Aussie, would you let me use some of your images of Port Moresby? (I mean, of the ones you've posted on this forum).

b) If anyone has other photos they think might be helpful, would you be willing to let me have a look? Photographs of workplaces and social events would be most helpful. Keep in mind that this thesis is about expats.

You'll get full credit for all photos...but I can't afford to pay anyone. sori tumas.

Anyway, hope you guys can help...I love this site.
