A traditional Indonesian village
Not far from the main road, about a hundred steps leading down to it, just beyond rice fields, around the bends of a river, and adjacent to a sacred forest, lies the traditional Sundanese* hamlet of Kampung Naga: a few thatch-roofed timber houses quietly nested on the hillside only disturbed by crowds of schoolchildren out for the day; a little girl bewildered at seeing me, white man with blue eyes; an old man kindly nodding back at me; a green-eyed cat lazily sitting on a window pane and staring at the rain.
* Sundanese, and not Sudanese, lol. They're the second largest ethnic group in Indonesia (about 35 million people), well behind the Javanese population, primarily located on the Western side of Java.
