It was a big night in Bali last night with the start of the Nyepi (Bali New Year) celebrations. The whole Island shuts down from sunrise today till sunrise tomorrow in an effort to rid Bali of evil spirits for another year.
Jim is in Bali and sent back shots of some floats that hit the street outside his local. Made of papier mache and bamboo, these monsters are supposed to scare the evil spirits up to the sky. At sunset all lights are left off so the spirits can't find their way back down to earth. Today everyone is indoors - no electricity allowed, no cars, no computers... and no surfing!
