Indonesia: Bali: Padangbai: religious ceremonies

The religion in Bali is Hindoe. Everyday, people put offerings in front of the houses, in the boats, … everywhere. 3 times a day they have to give the offers. And they have a lot of ceremonies.

May 29 was ceremony for “knowledge” (I even read that Balinese should not read books that day), May 30 was a ceremony where at 06:00 a.m., everybody went for a swim in the sea. (a lot of noise early in the morning, I must say). Nobody could clearly explain what was behind it. It seemed to be a cheerfull event.
1 day, in the village, there was lots of music in the street: it was a funeral. They carry the body all around the village. It feels a bit weird to see this.
