Women Power in Bali

This group of women moving earth for construction in hand-made straw baskets was spotted in a padi field in central Bali close to Ubud. One thing I noticed in Indonesia is that the women are generally always busy working, much of it hard manual work. The men seem to take on more of a supervisory role, usually involving sitting, smoking, sometimes drinking and generally minimising exertion. In my next life I want to come back as a male in Bali!
