I have a job as a tour guide on Bali.

I work 8 hours a day, 6 days a week. I’m earning 1.500.000 Indonesian rupiah a month. (About 230 US-dollars).

My husband is also working in the tourist industry. We met three years ago, got married three months later, and we have a little daughter. She is two and a half years old.

My husband is the youngest of five sons and because of that we have to live together in their house and support them now, when they are too old to work. They are both 70 years old.

Before we were married my father in law made all decisions about our common life. Now my husband does that. That’s the tradition and that’s how it should be.
