Babi in Bagak Sawah

As best I can remember, we were walking out to the field after breakfast to run some inventory transects in the tembawang (see Tembawang) behind Bagak Sawah (See Bapaks from Bagak). I must have had my camera in my hand. Just as we passed this house, a (very pregnant) pig, or "babi", casually walked out from the kitchen (the building to the right with the thatch roof) with what I think is a pancake in her mouth. [NOTE: Image is a scan from an old print. Found a lot of wonderful pictures from West Kalimantan rummaging through the attic yesterday]. 


Dayak Kids


These kids were sitting in the doorway of their house in Bagak Sawah, West Kalimantan (see Bapaks from Bagak) early one morning when I walked by.  I was going out with Pak Afong to run transects in local tembawang (see Tembawang). Glad I pulled out my camera, because I really like this image.
