Ago Ago

These sometimes two-story high papier-mâché monsters often depicting the Mahabharata legend are pulled out into the street for display before a wild torch lit procession where they are carried through the streets on the shoulders of 20 or 30 Young men often a bit excited by the local drink. They should be then brought to the beach and burned. therefore destroying the effigies of the dark spirits. After that, everyone must remain indoors with their lights off for 24 hours. This is strictly enforced. Not even airplanes or boats sare allowed in or out of the island. A total shutdown while we wait in silence hoping the evil spirits will not return to Bali.
