About Bruce Parry's favourite moments

"There are so many favourite moments I could mention. The obvious televisual highlights were when I ran over cows as part of a Hamar coming of age ritual, when a thorn was put through my nose and my penis was turned inside out during my time with the Kombai in Indonesia or when I went hunting crocodile with the Dassanech.

My personal favourite moments though were the times I spent with the people when there was no translator, just me at night having a hug, pointing at something or sharing some food and just letting them know that I was enjoying myself and their hospitality. That's when I learned the most."
