I took this shot yesterday during my trek through the small villages of #Sumba island #Indonesia.  This man is drying out corn grains on top of what looks like a table...   But actually it's a tomb with several dead people inside.  This is how they do it out here they bury people above ground directly in front of their homes (you can see more tombs in the background).    I find it fascinating to explore different cultures of the world and see how others live their lives. Anyone else agree?…
