....well Nyepi is soon here in Bali.....the day when the evil spirits fly over the island and since they do not see anyone or any sign of life(the people have to stay inside with the lights off) the evil spirits continue on, over the island......the airport is closed, all shops, no one is allowed on the streets etc.....very interesting the Hindu traditions.....on the eve of Nyepi the villages get together and have a celebration, which includes a parade-ish type of ceremony with home made monsters made out of paper machete that are from 3' to 10', and are carried usually by the people who made it.......there is a vote and awards given for the best, 1st place, 2nd place etc.....good times and photos to follow.....today's picture is of yet another happy kid chillin in the village.....
