Young woman wearing woven wrapped cloth and shirt sweeps grass at tourist hotel

A young woman wearing red sandals, a maroon woven wrapped cloth skirt, and white tailored shirt sweeps the neatly manicured grass at a tourist hotel. With a stick broom in her right hand, she sweeps debris into a plastic dustpan on a long handle. A corner of a wet-rice paddy is visible behind her.Indonesians often sweep their yards morning and night to keep leaf litter or debris from attracting insects near to houses. These neat habits are further mobilized at tourist hotels where staff routinely sweep up even fallen flower petals to keep the grass paths pristine for guests.
