Journey to the land of Heavenly Kings

... One of the best bits here was watching the monkeys swim in a stream. They were originally fighting for a coconut, but this quickly turned into a game, where they jumped in, chased each other around, swam very aptly under water and then came out all wet to try and attack some more innocent looking children holding bottles of water.

... town. The first thing i noticed was a landmark by the name of Singki. This is a giant cross set upon a hill and can be seen from pretty much anywhere in Rantepao.

Temporary structures are built to house the guests that arrive, and many bring pigs or buffaloes to be slaughtered. The hosts serve sweets and coffee/tea to us, and offer us cigarettes, palm wine and betel nuts ( ...

... be many years, but modern times it ranges from a few months to a year. A bit strange to others, the Torajan's have such a deep respect for their loved ones, they feel they are caring for them until they can give them a proper send off.

The land itself is possibly the most beautiful scenery I've ever seen. A lush display of jungle, mountains, terraced rice fields, and the stunning unique architecture of the traditional Torajan homes make every second in this ...
