Luba is an old village near Bajawa at the foot of Mount Inerie. The community still lives by the old Ngada culture. Their houses are constructed with typical high-thatched-roofes and the village has a small center where shrines representing the clan’s ancestors. As everywhere in Indonesia the people are very open and friendly and they welcome everybody. Even though we don’t speak Indonesian, it is possible to communicate with them.
Sometimes I think “wait a minute, I know this face!” Do you know this feeling, too? It is especially weird when you are thousands of kilometer away from home.
What about this young face here, doesn’t it look very familiar to you? I think he looks like an Indonesian version of Alfred E. Neuman, except he is not missing a tooth
By the way, “What, me worry?” is Neuman’s famous and intellectually incurious motto since 1950.
