22 June 2015: Denizens of Mertasari Beach part four:

Pak Made from Sidakarya, the beach mystic and head of Laskar Mertasari. Pak Putu Cuncun is here every morning at six with four offerings and prays as the sun rises. I have so many photos of him in sublime silhouettes. He is deeply suspicious of the Hare Krishna who has turned up every morning for the past week. “Like a tray of laduree macarons,” said Tim Street-Porter. Perfect. The photo of them I posted yesterday unleashed a torrent of prejudice — with Mahayoni Widnyana.
