Her dwelling: Ni Nyoman Roti’s home is in the middle of her farm about 40 minutes walk to the main road or less by motorbike. The floor of her home is made of earth, the walls are woven bamboo and coconut leaves, the roof is tiled. There is only one room and her bed shares the same space as the kitchen.
