Back on Bali

Finally back on Bali, so happy! Only 2 more days until Nyepi so ceremonies are already in full swing. I love the detailed decorations, the chanangs (Balinese offerings) and umbrellas in this picture. Nyepi is known as the "Day of Silence", for 24 hours the whole island of Bali is at a stand-still. People are not allowed to turn on lights, leave the house or make any noise. Even the international airport is closed. It is a quite, magic day for self-reflection and meditation. Bali with no noise...unreal!
