  Hard to catch zzzzzzzz's - literally!

I could have fainted with relief when I saw how this guy was sleeping....realizing that there were groups like the Sierra Club and other environmental organizations where you can spend a night or two with the locals, which includes the sleeping accomodations...!

In all seriousness, the Huli people are accustomed to sleeping like this and find no problem or hardship to place their head on a hard branch at night when they lay down to sleep.
