To PaulVDV: blue & clothes
Thank you Paul,
I agree that there is an unpleasant blue tinge, but I actually had the blue levels at the absolute minimum when making the scan, so I don't know what went wrong. I have remade and adjusted this several times.
I was immediately struck by the differences to Bali as soon as I stepped ashore on Lombok. The Muslim dress codes made people look completely different. I don't know if the differences are as great today, when Western styles are taking over in most places.
Have a nice weekend,

Hi Gert,

When I was in Bali in 1990 I found that western styles had taken over already on most places.

Meanwhile Lombok has also become much more touristic.
Not so long ago there was an earthquake and a lot of tourists had to be evacuated.
Many people visit the Gili Islands in the northwest of the island.

Best regards,

Hello Gert and Paul,

Of course, the Muslims, and especially the women, are easily recognized by clothes from Balinese who are Hindu. I have looked at my photos from Bali to check and most people - both women and men- wear traditional dresses - the women their lace shirts and the man - longyi and the characteristic "cap". But the reason may be that most of my photos were taken in the temples, so they looked festive.
I am sad when I read about Gili - we were to visit it early in the morning the next day, but instead, we bought the returned tickets.
Have a nice day
