In Bali, when someone dies, if you have the money and it's the right day (?) you might get cremated and have a big ceremony. If it's not the right day or you can't afford it you will get buried and then several years later your bones will be dug up and you will be part of a community cremation ceremony. It just so happens that today was a HUGE community cremation ceremony at the Ulan Danu temple on the shores of Lake Bratan. The temple area is like a large park, with various temple areas.
There were bands playing and processions - it was all very colourful and interesting. By the way, the actual cremations didn't take place here, only the offerings and prayers.
Then on the way back through the villages we saw what we believe may be an actual cremation. Not sure though!
