17th March 2015 ~ The next venue in our itinerary list was Sade Traditional Village. It was one old village of the Sasak people which still remained and still inhabited by real people until this day.
At the entrance, you could do donate some money but there was no entrance fee. Then a guide would take the visitors around the village to see what life was like in a traditional Sasak village.
Originally the house was made of mud mixed with cow's dung which acted as mosquito repellent as well as heat provider. The walls were woven bamboo pieces while the roofs were made of dried grasses.
How people could survive in such a small and dark house was a wonder. Even though the materials used in the construction might look primitive, the buildings were still standing strong up until now.
