Baliem Valley, West Papua, Indonesia

Photo: Kevin Hill © All rights reserved | As we were hiking past a village compound, a family invited us in to share their lunch of sweet potatoes. Through our guide they engaged my sixteen year old son in a conversation about why he wasn't married yet and how many pigs he owned. There were many ribald comments made by the older women toward the young girls that the guide failed to translate.
