DR Invades Bali

This trip wasn't about cultural or language study; it was purely for pleasure. By pleasure, I mean beaches, massages, food, and... OK, a little bit of culture.

Kikiree and I visited Bali in September 2002, a month before the bombings in Kuta. We were totally amazed by the surrounding beauty and the impressive crafts by the local artisans. It's no wonder that so many fall in love with Bali!

Personally, I like it because it sounds a lot like my last name!

Child's Play

We ran into some children while visiting Goa Gajah, the Elephant Temple. When the kids saw me take out my camera, they crowded all around me so I could get the perfect shot!

Bali Culture

It seemed that everything was decorated with a flower, or some offering was being made. I didn't realize how spiritual the Balinese are!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great food and relaxing environment... totally laid-back!
  • Cons:Occasional bombings set by ignorant terrorists!
  • In a nutshell:Great place to spend a week and relax!
