Last week when I came to the beach, Kuta was crowded by hundreds of local tourist. Mostly they were student and came from Eastern of Java. Ah, holiday season is coming. Usually they came in groups and to keep everyone stays in the group their leader was equipped by this low-frequency loudspeaker. Here in Indonesia usually we call it “toa”. This was a shot of a group leader who walked around in front of me.
But that day Kuta wasn’t too friendly to its visitors. I heard from a masseur lady that morning, when the lifeguard hadn’t come to the beach yet, six students were dragged down to the bottom of the sea. Two of them were saved but the last four died.
