Bali – Keeping the Evil Spirits Away

On one of our day tours, the bus carrying the load of passengers encountered a roadblock.  The Balinese people felt the presence of an evil spirit so they lined the road with offerings hoping to keep the spirit away.

The detour the bus took led us to another blockade with the same goal.  The passengers had to disembark and walk the kilometer to our destination.
