  • Kete Kesu really is a beautiful village with its Tongkonans aligned to each side of a paved Plaza where sleepy relaxed dogs and peck of magnificent fighting cocks. Houses (woman) left richly decorated and decorated with Buffalo horns, the number expressing social status, granaries (human) right on stilts absolutely smooth to avoid the rise of pests to some 6 tons of rice. But also a burial site of a first type done vaults built with a Tau - Tau hyper-realistic on the threshold and other ancient sarcophagi topped of skulls bleached by time the cliff-backed. Beware do ascension with caution, the markets are covered with MOSS and slippery. Between the two, the inevitable been shopkeepers where you can acquire for a very reasonable price balsa wood carvings. For our greatest chance, our guide: best, managed to attend a funeral ceremony Rambu Solo in the nearby village of Tongrampon. With a gift for the family of the deceased, "seriously ill" for 1 month, right: shirt or black t-shirt, covered knees and smiles and thanks in bahasa indonesia, we enjoyed the hospitality Toraja, attended the sacrifice of 150 pigs and a Buffalo, tasted the Palm wine, tea and cakes offered by family, taken advantage of the festive and colourful party atmosphere all by a temperature near 35 ° added to the heat torches to burn the bristles of pigs... An unforgettable memory that invites us to reflect on another report to the death than that of our Judeo-Christian format.
