1971 Malaysia

318. Malaysia 1972 – Lake Toba

Hello – Welcome to WDEOD, a site full of Doris’ photographs!

Its purpose is to share the shots she took in her 50+ years of travel. I’m trying to do a post a film – so one tour may have many posts.
To see what I’ve put up so far, use the menu (three lines up there ↑ if you are on a phone or tablet) to go to a place or a year.


The Sunday and Monday were spent around Lake Toba. There were trips to Samosia and the Tao Islands.

Doris took a lot of ‘Woman/Girl Carrying Something on her Head’ shots. Here’s one.

The brochure mentions cannibal village. Perhaps this is the preparation area.
