I was one of the many witnesses of a funeral ceremony in one village in West Sumba. At noon I went to the river looking for a cool breeze. The boys from nearby villages had already bathed in the water.

I made one day vacation during my stay in West Sumba. I stopped looking for the tombs and visiting the charlatans. I rode a motorbike in search of beautiful beaches and exploring small villages with nice inhabitants.
