Today National Geographic Orion made its way into Simpson Harbor in the town of Rabaul. This was the ship’s second day on the island of New Britain. This morning there were tours into the town to learn about the volcanoes and visit the local market. In the afternoon we all toured the World War II sites around the town, such as Yamamato’s Bunker and the Underground Japanese Hospital. At the end of the day, we got to experience some amazing local cuisine. What a day!
