"Gili Air is developing"
Gili Air is part of the three islands that are near #Lombok called The Gilis. Tourists from #Bali to escape the crowds, they get on a speed boat that takes them within 2 hours to the Gili Islands. Due to the increased popularity the construction of hotels has begun. Men from Lombok are seeing this as a big opportunity to make money since their island is still far behind (in terms of tourism) the Gilis.
I am documenting daily a big group of young people that are working on the first big hotel on Gili Air. They have been working at the construction site for 2 years now, living in huts made of leftover construction material. The site is located on the beach and it rather looks like a dumpster, tourists walking by it. They rarely go back to Lombok, even though their home is just a 15 minute boat ride away.
