Does anyone know what the approximate costs are in Madang for:

1) internet cafes - costs per hour of use

2) fuel for cars

3) sending a parcel of about 100g by registered mail to Europe

Thank you very much for your kind help

J.H.C. Bruno,

You don't give up do you...?

I'net cafe is available at the Resort for about PGK 5.00 p/hour

Fuel (Unleaded) is going for PGK 3.50 p/litre at the Shell servo in town, or PGK 3.80 at the Mobil heading towards Jais Aben.

A parcel of Insect eggs/larvae weighing 100g should be about PGK 23.00 to Switzerland.

If your "sponsors" made application at the Post Office they could give you better/more accurate costs, but that's about as close as I can get.

Good Luck/Bon Chance
