Joey is Coming! Joey is Coming!

Joey has an unquenchable thirst for coconuts… and I mean unquenchable!  When we arrived in Madang one of the first things that we did was get to the market to purchase coconuts (kokonus).  Jim and I started joking that the locals were going to have to chop down palm trees to supply the demand.  The next day the landscapers arrived at the SIL guesthouse property and fell 3 trees!  Coincidence ~ I think not!

Something that was amazing regarding fresh coconuts in PNG.  Young coconuts are so full of water they nearly spray it out from the pressure inside when cut open.  We were able to pour 2.5 glasses worth of coconut water from just one coconut.
