Day 111: Nanga Sumpa
The last thing I remember, as the tuak takes effect, is James Masing describing Iban hospitality as a contest. The host must provide far more food and drink than is strictly necessary and the guests must consume as much as possible without falling over. From what I can see around me as I find my shoes, slither down the plank and head across the bridge to the guesthouse, it appears that the host has won this one hands down.
And the rain is back. Drumming on the roof in a soft, soothing, all-embracing rumble.
