Life in a village; The Marbun family, Tuk Tuk 2010
The Marbun family was taking a break at the front porch of their 40 year old traditional Batak house when I approached them. Starting from the bottom of the stairs is the older son, followed by the younger sister (who frowned perpetually) and the mother. The mother in law was chewing betel nut inside the house.
The father, Mr Marbun had gone to work in the coffee plantation, where he would earn a meager salary to raise his family.
This photo represents the laid back lifestyle of a Marbuns and their quiet values. They may live in poverty but they are strongly knit as a family.
Thanks for dropping by.
