Tana Toraja, Sulawesi, Indonesia. Julius Lantong with his parents. His mother - Alfrida Tottong Tikupandang - died five years ago and has been kept in a separate room in the family's house ever since. Her husband - Pantun Lantong - died 6 weeks before I visited the family for the second time. They will both be kept in the house until the family has saved up money for the funeral ceremony (Rambu Solo), which will probably be held within a year. Until then, the couple are considered to be sick - not dead.
