16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel

After trekking 3 hours through a tropical forest at 1100m above sea level. I reach this isolated Wea Rebo village on Flores island Indonesia. The villagers living in their traditional house in conical shape with thatch covered from rooftop to the ground, they welcome tourist friendly and warmly. Before the electricity to be turn off to return the silence of the forest, A couple make a dance with applause rhythm of villagers. The shadow of this couple on the roof look like a Giant visitting a village of tiny people.
