We spent 2 full days exploring the Tana Toraja area; this is an area high in the mountains of Sulawesi that has kept much of its traditions. Funeral celebrations where pigs and buffalo are slaughtered, the number is dependent on how many grandchildren you have, burial caves dug into the cliff face and long houses which have boat shaped roofs.
On the first day Michele came along with us, we had a map of the area and we planned our route, taking a Bemo to the first village and walking through paddy fields to further villages. The next day Michele wasn't too keen to come after our long trek the day before so we set off alone
A lovely couple of days but more travel tomorrow, 328 kms to Makassar……… MORE LEE’S Tours !!!!!
