|It's kind of the place to hang out and weave.|
|Everywhere we went I was drawn to the children, they are so beautiful!|
|Apparently a fashion statement in the making........|
|Brad had to have a hat like his!|
|Our driver and guide|
First stop was a weaving village. This was not a touristy set up at all. This was a real little village where all the women weave to help support their village. They have a little shop there where they sell some of the pieces and others are taken to the market to sell. We visited with a few of the little ladies as they worked. The Indonesian people are so happy and warm. It is always amazing to me....I guess I'm a little jaded from visiting Mexico but these people are just genuine. They love everyone and they smile and try to communicate.
Next stop our driver just pulled over and showed us a typical house....or we would say a compound. A group of houses that extended families live in. He showed us how they dry the rice from the rice paddy and how they cook and it was amazing. A world apart from us. Still cooking with wood. Doing many things by hand. Hauling water from a well. After we had walked around this little place and our guide had used the toilet, we said, do you know these people and he said no but they don't mind. And they didn't! How funny!
|This is where they dry the rice|
|The Kitchen.....not kidding!|
|Toilet......really not kidding|
|Finally persuaded her to take a picture....then I showed it to her!|
|Little family store.....one every twenty steps everywhere in Indonesia.|
