Portrait of a Mentawai Tribesman smoking

This Mentawai tribe usually smoke a roll made from the leaf of the bud of the banana fruit, but when visitors come to them they expect a gift of cigarettes which my guide carried for them. This an absolute luxury for them. In this portrait one can see the the pleasure he is getting from it.
