Annotation: "Bali."
Note: " ... im Hintergrund das 2000 m hohe Gebirge." (E-30-0,3).
Note translation: " ... in the background the 2,000 metre high mountains." (E-30-0,3). - Peter Valentin remarks that it would be better to use the word 'house' (in German: Haus) for these buildings, with their separate walls and roof, and retain 'hut' (German: Hütte) for structures like the hemispherical dwellings of the Mbororo and Hausa in this part of West Africa (PV 02.2002).
