Travel Indonesia - Bali Cremation Ceremony

INDONESIA | Wednesday, 28 November 2012 | Views [2970] | Comments [2]

Hanna Butler, the winner of World Nomads 2012 Travel Writing Scholarship, travelled to Southeast Asia to immerse herself in the local culture and write about her experiences. 

In Bali, Indonesia, a simple afternoon drive took an interesting turn when Hanna came across a traditional Balinese cremation ceremony for a local priest in the middle of a sports oval. After assurance from her local guide, Hanna got up close and personal to see a raw, open ritual for the departed that was every part a celebration.
