... exactly that.
I knew more or less what to expect when I found out I will attend one of those the night before. I knew, I will witness the buffalo's being slathered to death.
But did I expect a first raw sit for that particular act? It has never crossed my mind!.
I found myself being a strong person with a heart from metal, but what I have seen just hours ago, denies it all.
The day has just started. 8 o clock on a watch and Morgan, ...

Easter in Toraja

... deceased is embalmed and preserved in the family’s house – the families literally sleep next to their dead relatives until the time is right to have the funeral. All of this makes Toraja one of the most fascinating cultures to experience. As you can see from the photos, they live in these weirdly shaped wooden/bamboo houses that look like the boughs of a ship and are adorned with hundreds of buffalo horns, representing the status of the family - the more ...

It then took about another 1˝hrs to get down to Timbaan which came as a blessed relief as by this time i was fairly knackered and my shoulders were hurting from carrying such a bloody heavy pack.

The road was narrow and full of pot holes so I had to keep an extra eye on where I was driving, which was hard to do as the landscape was stunning. The road starting winding its way up the mountain. The higher we got the worse the road got until the Tarmac finally gave way to rubble and dirt track.
