Nias: Day One

April 19, 2016

Today we joined No Regrets, for a trip into town for fuel, groceries and a visit to a traditional, mountain top village. When we arrived a local kid came up and offered to do a high jump demonstration. In this village, young men must jump over this stone structure in order to win the right to marry (I guess they were breeding for height).

The jump was over so quickly that I am really glad I recorded it. You can enjoy it below the photos.

It was a remarkably busy and productive day, and we were all pleased to get to do some sightseeing. Tomorrow, we think we might try surfing this amazing break that is right behind us.
