private swap

Papua is a province of Indonesia.It comprises most of the western half of the island of New Guinea and nearby islands. 
Its capital is Jayapura. It is situated on hills which overlook the sea, and is accessible by boat and plane. It was here that General MacArthur assembled his fleet for the invasion of the Philippines during the Second World War.
Papua is a land of contrasts, with some of the most impenetrable jungles in the world and snowcapped mountain peaks towering over glacial lakes. 

Fine series of these map cards is here!!!
