Hit the Road Jack

When in Toraja I met some friendly locals over tuak drinking. They took me with them to a market in the mountains and for some sightseeing, nice people. I agreed to meet them in another town when back from my trekking as we were going same direction. Road trip, yeah! Apparently 2 of them work as kind of detectives for a magazine that search for corruption cases. Really? corruption in Indonesia? You kidding…

As well they were selling traditional medicine and other stuff at village markets, task in which I joined them for a couple of days. If you go to Sulawesi middle of nowhere markets you can find a picture of me promoting Papuan magic remedies next to the ones of naked men with penis gourds.

I had a great time and even taught them how to play shithead in Indonesian. They wouldn’t let me pay for anything. One of them seemed quite well-off. He has 4 wives and still some love left to share at the evenings with the professionals.
