this book up to learn about Toraja Besides Java and Bali there are so many other islands to explore in Indonesia Unfortunately this book wasn t exactly what I expected It isn t bad but it s just not the book you should pick up if you want to learn about Torajan cultureThis book is a very personal account by the author He is a trained anthropologist who was doing his research work in West Africa However a change in research project took place and he found himself exploring South East Asia and specifically Indonesia The author is uite honest when he says it was much easier for him to make friends in Indonesia than it was in all the time he had spent in West Africa before We are talking about the 80s hereThe first third of the book is basically his preparation and then journey from London all the way to Jakarta Next stop Surabaya Next stop Makassar And only after that do we reach Toraja land through a strenuous horse ride that takes several days I found the writing of the author somehow mystical and a bit difficult to follow The tone is definitely comedic and he recounts highly personal experiences But even though he was recounting everything in a chronological manner it was still difficult for me to grasp what was going on Somehow his experience was very out of this worldBut I enjoyed reading different parts of the book Especially when he meet Yohannis and his grandfather Nenek This year I won t be able to fly back to Indonesia to visit family because of the whole covid 19 situation So I ve been reading a lot of Indonesian books to still my nostalgia And this book highlighted the warmth and humor of Torajan people although I always remember that Indonesian people have a tendency to be extra friendly to white people than to others Anyway the book felt like a love letter from the author to the Toraja people What I know about the Toraja people prior to reading this book is that they are one of the many Christian minorities in Indonesia they have elaborate funeral rites they dig up their deceased relatives and perform a ceremony in which they change the clothes of the deceased The author describes some of these ceremonies in the book but he really doesn t go into the details So if you want to read a book about Torajan culture this really isn t it because the author concentrates on his personal experiencesThe author was very impressed by how Torajan men built and carve their famous alang rice barns He has the idea to bring Nenek Yohannis and two other men to London where they would showcase in a museum how a rice barn is built in a span of 3 months This was a very touching part of the book because you get a glimpse of how Torajan people view Western society and culture Overall this was a very uick read but not the sort if you

The author is an anthropologist who submerses himself in an anything but objective way into the lives of the people he is studying I don t know if this makes him a good scientist or not but it does make him a very amusing writer He is so full of good will and good humour and a desire to do right by his subjects that he goes as far as bringing them over to London to build a traditional rice barn in a museum These people live very untechnological lives where traffic fast food sprung mattresses and a life ruled by the clock are foreign concepts So in a way the roles were reversed and they got to study us too Grammaire du français himself in an anything but objective way into the lives of the people Dont Get Sick he is studying I don t know if this makes Vegetables him a good scientist or not but it does make The Judas Scar him a very amusing writer He is so full of good will and good Intercepted humour and a desire to do right by Flannery O'Connor Walker Percy and the Aesthetic of Revelation his subjects that Duel in the Sun Alberto Salazar Dick Beardsley and America's Greatest Marathon he goes as far as bringing them over to London to build a traditional rice barn in a museum These people live very untechnological lives where traffic fast food sprung mattresses and a life ruled by the clock are foreign concepts So in a way the roles were reversed and they got to study us too

First published in 1988 Not a Hazardous Sport by Nigel Barley offers an account of the author s travels to and around the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia For a few months he lived amongst the Torajan people known in academic circles for the carvings on their buildings and their traditional ancestor culture Barley interacts mostly with the men and this is reflected in the narrative As an anthropologist he is there to observe To get the most from the book the reader would be advised to set aside certain western sensibilities something I struggled with I baulked at many of the attitudes described especially towards women Certain incidents involving animals were also upsettingThe author travels to Indonesia to undertake ethnographic fieldwork Funds are limited so he travels economically His preparations and the journey although undoubtedly trying are recounted with humour A stopover in Singapore where he stays with a Malay family includes a visit to a red light district much to the discomfort of his hosts This set the scene for conversations that would occur throughout the book Women are sexually objectified expected to produce babies and look after the home children and the men Whilst recognising that this was the accepted culture I would have liked to read of the women s thoughts on how they were treated and if they desired changeIndonesia is described with fondness despite its dangerous transport mosuito infestations and often uncomfortable accommodation The author describes the people as largely welcoming impressive given the appalling behaviour of other tourists He visits several villages befriending those he meets and staying in their homes The exchange rate makes him comparatively wealthy and he enjoys his ability to pay generously for services renderedThe book is written as a series of descriptions of journeys and encounters I found the cock fight episode distressing I suspect the author wished to demonstrate the humour of the

a scene I want to have in my head It was of course interesting to learn of western habits that they observed with similar disgust My recoil is not an attempt to take any sort of moral high groundAt the time of writing Indonesia was changing Many traditional beliefs were being abandoned for Christianity Buildings with galvanised iron roofs rather than bamboo tiles were regarded as modern Woven cloaks coloured with plant dyes were no longer as popular as those made from rayonFollowing his stay the author invites a small group of men to travel to London and build a traditional rice barn at the Museum of Mankind The final chapter describes the reaction of these Indonesians to English habits and behaviour Their experiences have repercussions when they return to their countryAlthough well written and witty in places I struggled to engage with the author s portrayal He may have been fond of those he met impressed by their openness and welcome my reaction was largely negative I would
