Barbecue by the river. Guest being helpful.
Michael Palin - Full CircleAfter an evening meal of roast duck, beef curry, tapioca leaves, jungle fern and bamboo shoots, some highly disturbing news. Apparently James Masing, Sarawak's minister of Tourism and the guest of honour at tomorrow's feast, is coming here straight from a conference in Nepal, of all places, and may not make it. If this happens I will be guest of honour instead. Which all sounds very nice, except that it is Iban custom that the feast cannot take place until the guest of honour has slaughtered a pig.

Fall into light unhealthy sleep, dreaming for some reason of Sainsbury's.
