Photo of the Week: Bali Hindu Family Ceremony

I recently spent a month in Bali, Indonesia. From the minute I arrived, I was surrounded by culture, color, and some of the friendliest people I’ve ever met. The island is primarily Hindu, an extremely welcoming religion that believes in happiness and karma. I spent some time with a local family and was invited to a ceremony where I was greeted with happiness, an abundance of food, love, color and beauty that filled their temple.

The island is relatively small, but the scenery there is that out of a fairy tale. From active volcanoes, dense jungles, black sand beaches, and the bluest water . You can find just about everything to be in awe by. Now I know why Bali is commonly called the Island of the Gods.
