www.TravelsWithSheila.com Apologies for the very dark film bug a generator doesn't help put out much light in a Dayak Longhouse. All visitors to Tabinbini are welcomed in a traditional ceremony that involves rituals, lots of home brewed, strong, rice wine and gamelon music. They sprinked dry rice on heads for prosperity, tied on string bracelets for health, and touched our bodies with iron for strength. Then the dancing, rice wine and betel nuts became to flow. Lots of fun and worth the minor inconveniences - like 95% humidity, 90+f at night and sleeping on a wooden floor. An adventure.
