On our recent dive trip to the Alor region in East Nusa Tengarra, we visited the traditional village of Abui on the main island of Alor.  We were treated to some traditional dances as well as lots of betel nut chewing and some ikats for sale.  Below are some pics.  The village head is the gentleman with the scar on his face.  He wouldn’t tell us how he got it but I doubt it was shaving.  All images shot on a Nikon D810 with either a Nikon 70-200mm F2.8, a Nikon 50mm F1.4, or the Nikon 16-35mm F4 using only available light.
