Marty’s photo of the day #3551: For anyone who has read my latest book, Hits, Heathens, and Hippos: Stories from an Agent, Activist, and Adventurer, this is Nanga Sumpa, the Iban longhouse that Deb and I raced the flooding deep-canyon river to get to. In Borneo, entire tribes live in a single longhouse, and when each male gets married, he builds an addition onto the end for his family. Inside is a long hallway that goes the entire length of the house. I often worry about my Iban friends and how they would cope with a COVID-19 outbreak. For such a close community, social distancing would be extremely difficult.
For anyone who hasn’t yet read Hits, Heathens, and Hippos, why not? The book is full of adventures, laughs, love, music, and even business advice. You can buy my Amazon #1 Best Seller in both paperback and Kindle formats here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08VHP6N2F
