Lombok in Indonesia is the neighboring island of Bali. The landscape is dominated by Indonsiens second largest volcano Rinjani. In large parts the life in Lombok is very simple. There are still many villages that have neither electricity nor water or sewage system, like you can see in the video taken near Sukadana-Bayan
