More photos of longhouses, Tatau River

These are photos taken of 2 longhouses that I visited. Note the modernised interior, i.e. aluminium-framed glass door and sliding windows with tint. Keeps out the sunlight in the early hours of the day I suppose. Most of the time in a longhouse, the "ruai" or verandah is where everyone gathers to socialise and to chill out. Boats with outboard engines are the main means of transportation here, other than speedboats and the express boat (express boats are like river buses which commute daily from one longhouse/village to another. You pay according to the distance you travel).
