As soon as Tana Toraja was introduced to me, it was taken away as well. I still remember the fact that I agreed on those meagre four days in Tana Toraja Ďbecause my schedule is too tightí, as it always is. In the van, just leaving the hotel for the last time, I was asking myself when I would really stop taking about schedules at all. Probably never, because I will always have to take an airplane in and out Indonesia again, but the time between those fixed points is merely a collection of things to do and things done in the past. For now, I was on my way to Makassar again, this very same evening I would have dinner with the owner of Caraka Travelindo, which has provided me with this wonderful trip.

Finally we found ourselves in the heart of Tana Toraja, seen as one of the few places in Indonesia where tourists go to see something that has to do with the everyday life, which is also Ďprotectedí by the Indonesian government.

I realised that it was not possible to see everything as thoroughly as I normally would, with my little four days in the area.

Just outside Sengkang we brought a visit to some houses with traditional weaving installations under their house. In this way they are protected from the sunís direct heat and they are working close to home. Itís nice to see the fabrics being produced in front of your nose, too bad itís nothing for me to buy something like it. If you ever want to buy something like it, you can choose from all kinds of natural dyes. If you which they can put real gold in it as well.

On a usual early morning, around seven, I woke up from my last night in Bira, a small coastal town on the lifted coral sediments of the south-western tip of Sulawesi. It was time to get dressed, have some breakfast, which isnít much choice here, but well, itís Bira, a place with only a handful of people living here, compared to other places in Indonesia. Getting dressed and packing my backpack again I was thinking I would not be here for quite some time. I hadnít planned a second trip to Sulawesi yet, so this is probably the last I would see of Bira in quite some time.
