In the banjar(village) of Wira, our Foundation president, many ceremonies unfolded these last few weeks. Here is our intern Natalie with the village ladies carrying the Barong, a type of a lion-dragon monster, through the whole village. In the next picture you’ll see our Volunteer from New York dressed in traditional festival garb with Wira in the front of a beautifully carved door at Wira’s home. Kevin being very tall, the sarong is a bit short on him.
These precious tools, Melati and Balakas, are worn by Balinese males during festivities and are actually used as tools. They are passed down from father to son and are very valuable to the family.
