Brick burning in Sumbawa

Sumbawa island located in the chain of Lesser Sunda Islands was famous for its horses and sandalwood during East Indies time.  Today this sparsely populated island is far from trade routes and tourist trails.

Brick burning brings modest income.

    • The rain brings relief. During dry season must be a hell there.
