... cave chiselled out of a stone cliff. In a natural cave the body is placed into a coffin, often with another deceased family member, and then hung up high in the cave. We were told this is done so that the deceased do not get wet (as they would be rained on if buried in the ground) and also so not to use up farming land for graves.

Pigs are less expensive but even more of these will be sacrificed. The meat from these animals will then be used to feed the family and all the funeral attendees, which may be well over 200 people.

... caught a shared kijang to Makale the administrative capital of Toraja for Rp20,000 which took 1hr 15mins and then another kijang from there to Rantepao for Rp7,000. I was thus in Rantepao by 3pm and went straight to the Hotel Pison which is where i stayed last time i was here. At 3:30pm the heavens opened and i was just thankful that i wasn't still out trekking.
