My little lady wanted to go in her bilum again today, something she hasn't done for a long time. A bilum is a large bag that ladies in PNG carry their babies in. As I was cleaning out the closet today, she saw the bilum and wanted to go in it. I put her in it and hung it on my bed frame. She was very content and after 30 minutes I told her it was time to get out. She still loves it! There is no way I can carry her on my head, like I did in the village.
In the village...summer of 2008.
