Ray, these are interesting. I am always interested in visiting very old grave sites. Thanks for posting the photos.

Thanks for the photos, Ray. They brought back fond memories of my 2 years in Indonesia (the world's 5th most populated country) in the mid-1980s. I had never heard of Tara Toraja (TorajaLand), even though I once spent several days in Sulawesi at Ujung Pandang (the capital and principal port of Sulawesi). Sulawesi, formerly known as Celebes, is one of the nearly 14,000 islands that make up the nation of Indonesia.

According to my hurried research, TorajaLand is apparently in the southwest not too far from Ujung Pandang, which is most likely where your ship docked. I tried and failed to find the place in my world atlas. Sulawesi is an odd-shaped island with eastern (Tenggara) and western (Selatan) sections separated by a large body of water called Teluk Bone (Bay of Watampone). In the north there's a narrow neck of land (Sulawesi Utara) about 200 miles long west to east, and below that another east-west neck (Sulawesi Tengah) is about a hundred miles long.

Anyway, your photos and cultural notes about the graves were most entertaining and informative. You have certainly been in places which few men have seen or heard of, Ray, and I salute Helen's and your spirit of adventure. Happy cruising!

Jack

We docked in Polopo, in the bay of Bone. It is about 367 KM from Ujung Pandang.Marante is inland from there.

While onboard the Pearl we visited Komodo, Palopo, Ambon, Ternate, Bitung then to Sandakan, Malaysia, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching Malaysia before disembarking in singapore. It was a wonderful 21 day cruise. The cruise was titled THE RING OF FIRE.

Below is a picture of the Pearl. We only had 188 passengers. Short load.
