Better than Bali!

Camera enthusiasts in David Metcalf's visiting photographic tour exclaimed "Our experience here has been better than Bali!"

Cruising the rivers to record images of orangutans, river and lake panoramas, and the faces and lives of village people, their final spectacular experience was an ensemble of 3 Dayak tribal dance troups. 

Representing traditions from the mountainous Murung Raya region and from Palangkaraya, we saw dances to cleanse evil spirits and dances representing wild animals and others celebrating harvests.
