I took this photo around 2015 near the village of Payangan on the way to Kintamani. I saw several old women working as labourers carrying sand. They were not concerned with the heat from the sun nor with the fact that they were no longer young but rather they were full of enthusiasm. And who knows how much sand they had carried put into the carried using their strength. And that is a snapshot of Balinese women: they are strong, tenacious and tireless when working for their families. Although they do not get paid a lot, they get satisfaction if they can earn money by themselves.
