Yesterday was Nyepi day. The day of silent reflection and respect to the gods and spirits that inhabit the world. It’s also the start of the Balinese New Year, now 1934!
The only sound I heard was the sea, the wind, the rain and birds. Even the dogs were still…
The day before Nyepi day a big Ogoh Ogoh parade took place at Jl. Raya Seminyak. Ogoh Ogoh are statues built for the Ngrupuk parade. Men carried the big statues and boys the smaller ones.
An explanation of Ogoh Ogoh and Nyepi day you can read on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ogoh-ogoh
It is very interesting to know….
