Sarawakian Local Delights : Home rolled cigars and guns
These two ladies are friends of my friend Sonia Lahung. They are cigar smoking and gun carrying.
In fact they are Iban women who are married into the Kayan coimmunity of Uma Bawang in Upper Baram. Here they are seen getting ready to walk 1 and 1.2 hours to a river side, from where they will drive their boat to their longhouse.
