Fixing a hole where the rain comes in

New signs on the by-pass road between Sanur and Kuta


Sanur roadworks

We may laugh but this is actually quite a step up. Until last week all roadworks in Bali consisted of large numbers of minimum wage Javanese workers with a rudimentary hand-painted sign, although sometimes none, often working at night with no safety gear or warning lights. As of this week they have flashing lights, orange jackets, road cones, and helmets. I wonder who paid for it. Japan? Australia?

Still swinging their picks and shovels in jandals, though….
