    Our adventures continued the next day in Toraja with Arru picking us up at 8:30 am. We stopped by the grocery store to pick up some cigarettes and candy which we would offer to our gracious hosts whom were hosting the day's funeral ceremony.

    Our first stop however, was the beautiful village of Ke'te Kesu. It is the home of some of the oldest traditional houses, some dating back 700 years. It was also Arru's home village so he was ...

    ... most important event in the Torajan culture, the funeral. At first it may sound like a strange tourist trap gone horribly wrong, but it is a beautiful authentic land.

    ... our guide explained to us that although Christianity is now the main religion, Torajan people also continue to honour their traditional Gods.

    When a family member dies, their body is stored in the family house, for a period of a few weeks to a few years, so that the family can save up enough money to fund the appropriate funeral.

    ... t even see it while I bristle and give them the stink eye. Obviously this does not interfere with the flight and I am just a stickler for rules and need to take a pill. We arrived in Kota Bahru and had to spend the night in a hotel there before our transfer to the resort. The hotel we booked has properties in a lot of places in the world but I had never heard of them.
