Today’s Sunday Snapshot comes from Elena, a twenty-something Ukrainian girl, occasionally getting lost in different corners of the world and currently settling as an expat in France. You can get to know more about her adventures on a budget on her travel blog Elena’s Travelgram.
“The picture was taken during my month-long journey in Indonesia, around Rantepao, Sulawesi. Rice is a staple food in lots of Asian countries, particularly Indonesia. You can’t imagine a meal without having it! Besides, selling rice is one of the main sources of income in the area. When I stepped closer, the women in the rice fields smiled and stopped working for a while. It is still pretty uncommon for them to see Europeans in the area because travelers rarely visit this region. Yet the nature here is absolutely amazing and the local culture consists of both Pagan and Christian beliefs, resulting into unusual traditions, like bull sacrifices during funerals”.
