Balinese kites are very special. August is called the windy season and many kite festivals and kite flying competition take place. Usually the kites are a communal project of the respective youth organizations. Sizes can vary form  a smaller kite  to the size of a large truck. They are transported by rage trucks to the competition event, while to overhanging parts are supported by youth marching next to the truck. Guests during this time at #Jiwa#Damai Permaculture retreat center you can listen during the night to the long tails flattering in the wind, making very rhythmic sounds.
