Descending from the humid rainforests of the Haghier mountains, still far from the southern coast, sky and land open in a hotter savannah-like landscape with small stone villages scattered throughout. In most cases these consist of a few clustered houses shared by extended families. Two men from the mountain villages lead our way to a house, where we share a meal of goat and rice, as well as find shelter from the cold night.
