300+ YEAR RICE BARN

300+ YEAR RICE BARN

SYNOPSIS:  About my new home and my guide.  About the peculiar architecture of the Torajans and a bit about their mythology and history.

As Oscar in Makassar had promised, Yussuf, my new guide, showed up at 6:30 AM at the bus station.  After 8 hours on the bus I must not have cut a pretty figure, but he did not seem to care.  As part of my tour package, he took me to my new accommodations:  Riana’s Homestay.  A large clean room, a large clean bathroom with hot water (no sink), a small green garden, available wifi and a very friendly host family — I could not complain.VIEW PHOTOS AND READ THE WHOLE STORY
