Cathie and I visited a traditional Sasak village north of Kuta.

Sasak village north of Kuta. Woman weaving (surrounded by eager children).

From Sengkol down to Kuta Beach is a centre of traditional Sasak culture, and there are many relatively unchanged Sasak villages where the people still live in customary houses and engage in indigenous crafts.

Only a couple of km south of Sengkol is Rembitan, the best known village with a population of about 750. The Masjid Kuno, an old thatched roof mosque, tops the hill around which the village houses cluster. A short distance further south is Sade, a smaller and more traditional village with each house fronted by a rice barn. Dotted on the hills all around are other Sasak villages.

- Lonely Planet: Indonesia 1990, page 567.

Today, it appears that the descriptions of these two villages have been reversed, with Sade now being the larger and more touristy.

Unfortunately, I can't be sure which one we visited. There's no name written on the back of any of the photos. On another scribbled note I have the date followed by "Kuta walk to Ra" which would suggest that it was Rambitan that we visited. But looking at the locations of the two villages on satellite photos, it seems we visited Sade. Also, I'm fairly sure I would have gone to the village described by Lonely Planet as being 'smaller and more traditional'.

I like the hands working together. You can feel the cloth taking shape.
