Sarawak - a night in the jungle in an Iban Longhouse

An Iban tribal "longhouse"
- this one consisting of 21 joined family units each of several rooms at the back each opening into one very long family room
with a balcony at the front

This photo is taken about midway in the family room of the longhouse so it shows just half its length
