Each person had a different reason for crawling out of bed at this unreasonable hour to throw back potent cold-brew coffee and talk about pig. This included two guys from Papua New Guinea: Fabian Paino, an internationally known master wood carver and Mundiya Kepanga, a Huli tribesman from a cool, mountainous part of the country. He's the one in a grass skirt with the bare torso.
