Cultural awareness.

I spend most of the morning listening to Professor Laurence Goldman who
assists the project with cultural interpretation. Dr. Goldman has been
travelling the highlands of PNG since 1977 and is quite an authority on
the Huli, the major tribe in the area of our project. We got a lecture
on social structure of the Huli as well as the do's and don'ts in
negotiations with them as well as our day to day dealings with members
of the tribe a number of which we expect to take up employment with us.
I have attended a number of these lectures over the years but this was
definitely one of the more interesting.

Hallo Eric,
Met veel interesse lees ik de verhalen
over je nieuwe werk.Misschien dat je nog
eens wilt beschrijven wat je toekomstige job
inhoudt, op een kaart kunt aangeven waar je
precies zit straks.
Heel veel succes gewenst. JAN
