Carita is a beach town about two hours away from where I live and the chosen location for a photo shoot that I did for some friends. Though nothing like the crystal clear waters of the surrounding islands (thanks to a nearby power plant), it does the trick for a quick weekend getaway! We hit the beach at sunrise and explored the surrounding kampungs where I caught a glimpse of the local lifestyle that I don't see quite as often, now that I live in the suburbs of Jakarta. The sun was shining and the local kids were precious. It's in quiet moments like these that I remember why I love living in Indonesia.
