Today, on the tiny island of Bali, Indonesia people celebrated Nyepi, the Balinese New Year also known as the silent day. And boy, was it silent! All shops, factories and offices were closed. No one went outside their compounds and the roads were empty. People used as little electricity and as possible and all construction stopped. The ports to and from Bali were closed and even the high-traffic Bali airport was closed, the only major international airport in the world to close down for a local holiday. This year even the internet, both cell phone and Wifi, as well as all TV channels were shut down.
And what happened to our non-human neighbors that we share this earth with? Let’s see.
