Sarawak Rooster

This magnificent rooster was tethered on the communal porch of a Penan longhouse near Miri when we visited in 2011. The flat sheets in the background are blocks of latex, natural rubber, harvested from the jungle and now curing before sale. In this state latex has a pretty unpleasant smell…but it brings a good price. Enjoy the week. I plan to post again next Saturday … perhaps with some rock art images from Arnhem Land.
