Day Two in Kalabahi

 

We were on a tour of the museum, a village the way it used to be and a dinner with the officials.

This is some very fine work of weaving called Ikat.

We also visited a market, we always enjoy open markets, because we can get fresh fruits and vegetables.  These peppers are very colourful and if you use too many they will blow your head off!

The Traditional Village

 

We went up into the hills to visit a traditional village, many of the people actually live in the village.

The women never seem to enjoy the performance as much as the men, later on you will see them smiling and happy.  The baskets are used for Betel nuts, or whatever.

They provided a fabulous meal for us and we ate in the huts where the villagers live.
