301. Longhouse chief
We got an invitation to visit the biggest longhouse in Bario. The chief was a very old man with nice and heavy earrings. The longhouse measured around 110 meters in length and had room for 24 families. The kitchen area was rather dark. Partly due to limited number of windows, partly due to black soot from the kitchen fires that had coloured the walls.
