Thye island of Nusa Lembonga is a slice of heaven. Poverty yes but lots of industry. They are constantly buidling. the industry here is farming seaweed. The whole family is involved and there are rows of seaweed in the ocean like rows of wheat back home. Tfhey sell it in Jakarta.
What a dream! This is like a freedom 55 commercial. Drinks in a bar on the cliff overlooking the beach and pounding surf. Hemingway would have loved this place.The pace is very slow and we sat drinking and reading our books.
We toured more of the island and came across people carrying a woke with twin baskets filled with seaweed. They gather it twice a day at low tide.
