We took a hike in the countryside while in Bali. We crossed this little, rickety bamboo bridge. Apparently, before this bridge was built, a man would wait at the river and carry people across on his back for a small fee.
We walked through rice paddies on the way to the village of Tenganan in Bali. There were lots of workers in the fields as it was harvest time.

On our walk, we passed by many homes and vendors selling handmade rattan goods.
One of the entrances to Tenganan. According to our hike guide, the village of Tenganan is an original Balinese village, with pure Balinese residents. They were in Bali before people began to arrive from nearby Java. They are an exclusive community. Women who marry must marry from within the village. If they marry an outsider, they must leave. The women are allowed to leave to go to school, though.
