Backpacking Sumba II, Pasola Lamboya 2018 dan Itinerary Sumba 4D3N

Matahari sedang terik-teriknya, tak ada atap tenda atau pohon rindang yang sedikit menghalau paparannya jam 11 siang itu. Di atas padang rumput luas di puncak bukit ini hanya semilir angin yang membawa sedikit nafas, sekaligus mengangkut gemuruh dan sorak sorai ratusan-atau mungkin ribuan-penonton yang bergembira, berteriak, mengumpat, bahkan berloncat-loncat, tak acuh terhadap matahari, tak kenal panas dan terbakar sinar UV.  1.145 kata lagi

The war-like ritual in Sumba

I was in Sumba, Indonesia, in Ratenggaro Village to be precise. That very morning, the usually quiet village looked pretty busy and also crowded. Many people passing by the village’s gate; almost all of them walked toward the village square while many had already gathered around the square ignoring the heat caused by the scorching morning sun. 1.383 kata lagi
