The Wet City – Lae

Lae, Papua New Guinea

It rains most of the year in Lae City, Papua New Guinea. Everything is grey, weather is over-casted, but when it stops raining and the sun comes out, Lae is green. The Kuanua ran aground and storms installed it just off the edge of former Lae airport.

Kuanua’s rusts make her stand out in the wet weather.
