March 28, 2016 - Wainyapu (Indonesia). The evening before the big Pasola of Wainyapu, Peter's mother and sisters participate together with all the female villagers in a blessing ceremony lighting up candles and offering betel nuts to the tombs of their ancestors The tombs are normally built a few meters outside the houses as the villagers believe their ancestors will protect them. © Thomas Cristofoletti / Ruom
