    Kelapa muda (Young coconut) is a popular drink here, and mostly profit for many as the vendors just harvest wild coconuts for free.

    Here's how they prepare it (Watch your fingers)

    Seafood is quite common in Indonesia, but there are restaurants every couple of hundred meters as you go down the roads near holiday resorts.
    They vary wildly in quality, but I have yet to visit any that were better than 'acceptable'. Some are brick buildings but many are bamboo structures. The food is usually cooked to order so is generally fresh.
    This one in in Anyer, and could be said to be pretty typical of the sort of thing you'll find there.

    The big holiday season has come and gone, and so have all the tourists from the major resorts, but they left their rubbish.
    This scene was pretty much the same at every rest stop and a good few of the beach side parking areas and markets.
    There's little by way of local habit here as far as throwing rubbish in bins is concerned, and very few bins anyway.

    Many people have no access to piped water, so wells are very common here.

    The same goes for toilets, many people have no proper sanitation.

    Some are even worse.
    The drain is the river.

    The lady of the well was outside a house who's owners have a little cottage industry going.
    People here who are unable to find work or feel they can do better by starting a micro business conduct a variety of trades, this one making fish food.

    This attitude to work and their determination to look after their families strengthens my admiration for the Indonesian people.

    Another very interesting cottage industry is this one. I discovered this place the same day as the fish food.
    The old way of calling Muslims to prayer was a drum as well as the vocal call. The drums were louder than the voice so would attract more attention over a greater distance. Many mosques still use the drum, and many more keep one as a nod to the past
