The bodies came out of the gate wrapped in cloth. Bodies are usually cremated in Bali. However, cremations can be expensive. Sometimes a body is temporarily buried until the family can afford a proper cremation or until another family member dies and they can get two for one. In this case an old woman had died some months ago. She was cremated along with a six year old girl relative who died in a traffic accident.
