A RISKY BUSINESS

A RISKY BUSINESS

               

We have a big coconut palm at our entrance. A couple of times every year a climber, Gede Mertayasa, comes  to harvest the coconuts. He does it for free but gets the coconuts.

It is  fascinating  to watch him climb up the tree using his bare feet and hands without a rope or a safety net. And it looks so easy...

But it is not.

 

Only a few local people know how to climb coconut trees and harvest the coconuts. They have learned and practiced climbing since their childhood.
