The Honey Nights. In the foliage, Hamsah and his brother Boni harvest, with the help of smokers, ropes and baskets, about twenty nests of the giant bee. This ancient technique barely differs from the harvests by the primitive people living on this island 12,000 years ago, as can be attested by the cave paintings of bee combs in the caves of Liang Karim situated in the east of the island in the Marang mountains. Borneo, Indonesia
