Life In The Waves

IMG_0648

Riding waves, guiding tourist, then take them to a snorkeling spot is now a job for Mr. Ila. The growth of tourism in Lombok island make a huge impact for people who lives near the sea. One time, Mr. Ila was a fisherman. Although not an ordinary one. For people who lives near the sea, selling marine commodity was never enough. So then one day a travel agency offer him a job that maybe not everyone can imagine. He was offered a job to escort illegal  immigrants from the middle east ( They transit in Lombok from the middle east ) from Lombok to Australia. With a very small fishing boat! And the travel only pay for $10/trip. I said that he was crazy, but he just smile and laugh. Now, he had 5 small boats on his own result of the hundred of tourist that visit Lombok Pink Beach these days.
