Living the simple life is not always so simple

When you come to a country like Bali you have to live and work with the locals to get a better understanding of their lives. Its Saturday and there is always so much to do. At 6am this morning i was at the rice fields for sunrise to make sure we keep the birds away from the rice fields,its harvest day today so we go back around noon and we get to work.

After We had finished at the rice fields this morning around 8am i went with the locals and taught them how to sharpen and keep sharpen the blades and knives they use for farming and fishing, cooking etc. They were really pleased how sharp i got the knives and once i had shown them i got them to do it while i watched and guided. 

In a few mins i head back to the school for 2 hrs to help a little more there before the harvest. After all this il be working on a few of my own things and then will take it easy for the evening. 

I will be out again at 6am with the locals going fishing, not with nets or fishing rods but the traditional Balinese way. 

After 2 weeks in Lovina i feel like part of the village already and not a tourist, these people really know how to make you feel at home and welcome, they may lead simple lives but their heart is in the right place. Its good to be able to come and help these people and is one of the most satisfying things i have ever done, thank you world!!
