Where I stayed
My partner showed them all around the farm, while his wife made a Sasak fest of fried salty fish, veg curry spiced with a root that looked just like tumeric but the meat of the root was white. I bit into a fresh one and have no idea what it is. It has no Indonesian name, only Sasak. And then gado gado and rice.
Then the fruit-- we picked mango, papaya, and banana and jackfruit for dessert. It was Aunt Bea good.
The visitors gifted their Sasak hosts 90,000 rupiah, about $10, between the three of them
90,000 rupiah is the daily wage for a school teacher here. A rice paddy worker get 15,000 a day. Everyone's a winner,
