Photographer's Note

Two teenagers from the Dayak Tribe in East Borneo, took part in the welcome ceremony during our visit last year.
It's just their culture that every visitor is accepted and welcomed by the whole villagers. As we arrived, we shook hand with the lining up villagers, and we were given souvenir as we stood on a big GONG , as part of ceremony welcoming outsiders. Later at nite, the whole "kampung" (villager) gathered up, dressed up, and danced us their traditional dances.
Amazing experience!
