SHHH...today is NYEPI
Nyepi is a Hindu tradition and a day of silence that is commemorated every new year. It is a day of silence, fasting and meditation. Observed from 6am until 6am the next morning, the Balinese Hindu populations respect this day as self-reflection. The main restrictions are: no lighting fires, dim lighting, no working, no entertainment, no traveling, and for some, no talking or eating at all.
