Young Generation of Baduy

Sanip stop walking when the Economic Train passing on the railway track.

The Baduy ethnic tribe live in Banten province, West Java, Indonesia. Members of the Baduy tribe safeguard their traditional ways of life by resisting any form of modernity. They obey the entire set of custom, including traditional prohibitions. Among others, prohibitions include smoking, committing crimes like fighting and killing, divorce and traveling by transportation.

Otherwise, that rule doesn’t make three teenagers to give up for adding their experiences in Jakarta, Sanip (26), Zakri (26) and sarip (32). They had to go on foot, and passed 14 rivers, 67 villages, and 2 railway stations. They walked to Jakarta during three days. Surely, walk barefoot.
