A more western style breakfast before leaving the Iban Longhouse. #goodbye #culture #friendlypeople #breakfast #iphone #iphone7plus #iphonephotography #family

After the ceremony and "dancing", our sleeping accommodations. Eight stalls, eight people coming and going. The mattress was comfortable, and the netting kept the bugs away. #sleepytime #sleepy #bunk #stall #sleepingbeauty #iphone

Two photographs to memorialize my evening dance performance. #dance #dancemoves #ceremony #comedy #havingfun #wonderfulpeople

My rendition of the Iban warrior dance. The children and women were laughing hysterically. The men were more courteous in their judgement! I started out with the sword, but apparently the elders thought it was too dangerous. It was great fun. There were a lot of OooAHAs as I "danced". Hope everyone watching this gets a good laugh. Just remember in your judgement, I'm now trained as a Borneo headhunter!!! (Sort of!)

Traditional Iban ceremonial dancing. I'm up next...but they took the sword away!...apparently too long, too sharp and too dangerous! My dancing is the comedy act for a night of socializing and drinking. #traditional #ceremonial #dancing #music #drinking #talking #laughing #iphone #iphone7plus #iphonephotography #family

The Iban families have gathered for a traditional dance presentation. At night the families will sit along the wall of the common space to socialize...the men talking, smoking, toasting and drinking rice wine...the women and children in their groups. I'm about to become the comic relief of the night. As the night has progressed the Tuak gives way to the potent Langkau wine. #socialgathering #wine #drinking #socializing #dance #borneo #sarawak #traditionaltattoo #traditionaldance #traditionalmusic #dance #iphone7plus #iphonephotography #iphone

OooHAH is the toast when drinking the Iban rice wine. The higher alcohol Langkau quickly replaces the Tuak wine...the Iban do a lot of toasting with shots of the 80 proof Langkau wine. #drinking #alcohol #wine #potent #toasting

The Iban produce two rice wines: Tuak with a low alcohol content, and Langkau, with the alcohol content of vodka. After the wine is made, it is "bottled" in any available container to be shared with family and guests. #wine #winebottles #ricewine #homemadebrew #drinking #alcohol #eveningdrink #gathering #iphone #iphone7plus #iphonephotography #family

A flurry of feathers as the birds are release. The birds possess congenital aggression, and are bred and conditioned for fighting. This was a quick demonstration where neither bird was injured. It's hard to watch the real fight, as usually one bird, or both, do not survive. #aggressive #primitive #historical #difficulttowatch #demonstration #cultural #developing #countries #iphone #iphone7plus #family #shotoniphone #iphonephotography

While abhorrent to western sensibilities, cockfighting is hugely popular in the developing countries. This is the second of the two cocks in a demonstration at the Longhouse. #tradition #traditional #culture #cultureclash #cultural #primative #religious #iphone #iphone7plus #iphonephotography #family #wayoflife #pastime #shotoniphone

Cock fighting, considered a blood sport, goes back 6000 years. It's common throughout Southeast Asia, often with religious and spiritual traditions. It's banned in most of the western countries. #cockfight #rosters #fighting #sports #religious #cultural #illegal
