        Journey to the land of Heavenly Kings

        Annie: Arriving late at night in Indonesia was quite a stressful experience. We had just left the serenity and beauty of the Perhentian islands, so the busy Denpasar airport was quite a contrast. As you walk out of the main entrance you are simply bombarded with people, shouting, touching you, asking if you want a taxi, trying to lead you to their cars. I found this kind of harassment pretty disturbing, despite the fact that Jon had warned me prior to our arrival. On top of all this, ...

        The night bus from Makassar to Rantepao was probably the best bus i've ever travelled on. The seats were huge and reclined all the way back like a bed. As the bus wasn't full, i had an entire row all to myself. The past couple of days had been long with very little sleep. Needless to say, i slept all the way until i arrived at 05:00. Usually places don't begin to open until 06:00, so i just sat on the side of the road where i was dropped off, ignoring the touts, ...

        Buddhist and Hindu beliefs are that you are reborn after death, and that you will rise or fall in your next incarnation depending on the deeds and your behaviour in the last life.

        So, if you awoke from your death as (say) a cockroach in your previous life, to find that you were reborn as a water buffalo, a male water buffalo - and a rare albino water buffalo at that - you could be forgiven for thinking that things were looking up. In fact you may ...

        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 ...

        Funerals, Graves and Effigies

        ... to view this place, Arru assured us it is ok, and not disrespectful to take in these sites. That being said, taking photos of piles of human skulls is a bit unnerving experience...

        Next up was the even more strangely named site of "Baby Graves". We hiked up the mountainside to a large tree, with markings sealed over, moving up the trunk. Not practiced anymore, the old culture would bury any baby who did not yet have teeth, in the trunks of these trees. As ...
