Marty’s photo of the day #1634: Those who have read my first book, Cool Creatures, Hot Planet, know all about this photo. Deb and I were backpacking somewhere in the middle of Borneo with a guide from the legendary—but reformed—headhunting tribe, the Iban. Halfway through our expedition, our guide passed us off to a new group of Iban—we had just met—and we spent the night here, in one of their hunting lodges. Or, as I called it, “the Bridal Suite.”
BTW: The netting wasn’t to protect us from hungry mosquitoes; it was to protect us from hungry land leeches.
