Selamat Hari Raya Nyepi Tahun Baru Caka 1942

Today was Nyepi day and the first day of the Balinese year 1942. As usual, we stayed inside all day long without making noise and in the evening, we didn’t have any lights turned on.

Strangely, there were people who seem not to respect Nyepi as two of our neighbours were hanging around outside until almost 10pm, laughing, having bright, shiny spots turned on and drinking. We could hardly believe our ears when we heard it…
And no, they weren’t foreigners but Indonesian locals, one of them even a Balinese Hindu. Hopefully, their behaviour won’t bring any bad to our residential area in the future…
