We left Southern Bali and returned to Kuta for the Balinese festival of Galungan which celebrates the victory of dharma over adharma on August 29, 2012. There were penjor- bamboo poles or towers with ceremonial offerings at the ends and people worshiping on the streets and in the traffic circles. During this time, the spirits of the ancestors visit Earth and return to their former homes, descendants are meant to be hospitable by making offerings. This holiday happens twice a year on a 210 day Balinese calendar.
