Gates…so many gates

Everywhere we went we found gates.  Doorways to temples, royal meeting places, sacred areas.  So many gates.

Hannah weaving

More weaving at the Sukarara village.  If you look carefully, you’ll see that my daughter is tied into the loom – there is a board behind her back and it is tied to the board in front of her.  This way, she can hold the weaving tight as she weaves.  This particular weaving will take two months to finish.


Fisherman

Fish all night.  Fix the boat, nets, and sleep during the day.  Interesting life.


The Kawasaki I didn’t know existed

I love bikes like this.  Classic, although it is probably from the 1980’s.   The saddlebags really round it out.

Before seeing this beauty, I had no idea that Kawasaki made a bike called a “Binter.”  I’m a Honda guy, but this bike looks great.  I kind of wanted to take it for a ride.

What do you think?


Lombok Schoolboys

We were in Senggigi, Lombok, for six days.  Each day, this same group of boys would walk by, heading to school on the beach.  Sorry.  Not school-on-the-beach.  They were walking on the beach to get to school.

I love how their shoes are in hand.
