The paradise: Nusa Lembongan Island

After our stay in Sanur we took the Perama boat to the beautiful Nusa Lembongan island! the water is crystal blue! and you see some amazing fish while snorkeling.

While talking on the boat with the tour guide we found a really nice place to stay for about 20 euros per night a true finding!

The island income is mainly from seaweed plantations and secondly from tourism. The seaweed plantations started 20 years ago, with seaweed brought from Japan. Currently the plant it and sell 80% to Japan and Sweden for the production of cosmetics and medicines!

After work the workers launch kites and compete to see which one does the best dance in the sky! they had some impressive kites!

While our stay in Nusa Lembongan there was a big religious Hindu event which was the preparation for the cremation of 22 people that died in the last couple of years. They only do this event after the families were able to gather enough money to pay the ceremony! quite impressive we had the opportunity to see the preparations, properly dressed with a sarong! which is mandatory if you want to visit Hindu temples or join the ceremonies! more on this in our next post :)
