Cottage Industries in BaliBali is still a country very much unmechanized. On the southern shore, villages harvest salt from the sea. When it rains to much to allow the salt to dry, they harvest small black volcanic stones, polished by the waves, and sell them to companies who make mosaic floors. Can you imagine spending the day sifting through stones the size of a pea for 50 perfect ones?
