>Hut Museum

>At the entrance to the campsite, one of the huts was a museum filled with a collection of native artifacts, belonging to the Ifugao man who owns the campsite. We could go in there for free. We even heard a rumour that all of those cultural artifacts were for sale.

Note the fireplace inside the hut. Apparently there is supposed to be one there but some white tourists kept burning down huts so they had to remove it.

There are some archive photographs on the outside, one displaying the native “g string” outfit of the Ifugao men.

Sherwin sits outside with the owner and speaks the local dialect.

The owner chews some Moma, which seems to be like beetlenuts
