Description:George Harrison is telling the story of the place called Garanga. The name comes from fakakrango 'to cause to become dry'. During the headhunting period the people used to cut the genitals of young male and female captives, then dry them in the sun so that they could be preserved. It was the chief's priviledge to eat those dried parts before a battle or even to chew them during a battle. This was believed to increase their strenght.
At that time, Radu was a PhD candidate
George is one of Chief Haidu's sons. At that time he was probably in his late 20s.
