... emotion you feel quite possibly reflecting your thoughts on our final resting place.

After this it was time to head to the funeral. I was a bit anxious as we arrived but the hosts made us feel welcome immediately. The event was for a lady who had passed away 9 months earlier, at the age of 69, almost the exact age and time of death of my own mother.

... a visceral experience. Words and photos truly don't come close to doing it justice.

We arrived in the southern gateway city, Makassar, on an early flight from Bali.

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. The Toraja also believe that possessions can be taken to the afterlife, so inside the coffin valuables will be placed, this lead ...

... me this island meant nothing but R and R while Lee-Ann did her open water diving cert and suffered anxiety and stress each day though it ended with her feeling great for her accomplishment. I just read, lounged, napped and snorkelled. We had a great room with an outdoor shower just off of the beach. There were snakes and bats and rats and giant flying foxes and giant lizards around the place. It is also a turtle sanctuary where the turtles come at night to make their nests and ...
