Postcard from Indonesia!

Today I got an interesting postcard from Indonesia! The card features the traditional Tongkonan houses in Tana Toraja in Celebes Island. Tongkonan houses are the traditional ancestral homes of the Torajan people. They are built with distinctive boat-shaped roofs and are typically built on piles. Those belonging to the nobility live in these houses while commoners live in smaller houses. Thanks Jennifer!
