The other side of the beautiful beaches of Indonesia

Far away from the touristic beaches, a small village of fisherman.
This crap is what you don't see if you only go to the main recommended beaches. Altough I badly experienced a nasty surfing session in Kuta Lombok. That day the wind brought back to the beach so much plastics and others craps that paddling was a game which consisted of avoiding them. I actually gave up after a few waves.
It's such a pity that no one seems to care about the environment. Population is not at all educated to substainable development, in these villages they throw away everything on the ground. I am not blaming them, I'm just hoping that their governement will work quickly on that.
