Here I am.

Once a year young Balinese people meets and - after a very joyous body-painting - they walk through dozens of villages - where people is expecting them. Why? They parade, singing, shouting, playing. Addressed to the whole Universe: "This is our land! Evil Spirits away from here!" Through rice fields, forests and rivers. For hours and miles. An example of a considered very powerful Bad Spirit? Greed!!! To guarantee a balance between taking and giving - with the environment and among men - is the key of the Balinese spirituality in every day life.
