The Honey Nights. Hamsah and his brother Boni are the only climbers in the family and in the village. They also make the ladder of perches that allows them to climb a tree. With a ring of interlaced rattan, they encircle the tee and install little by little their wooden perches. This technique, unlike that of the jantak which uses rungs of bamboo nails driven into the trunk, does not damage the tree and allows for sustainable exploitation of these centuries old trees. Borneo, Indonesia
