For 2.50 Dollars U.S. I will be able to explore the beach of Bali today.
I think it is 92 percent necessary you rent a motorcycle in Bali; it is mess, one very huge city that never ends. You need a motorcycle to find something interesting quickly. It is the world?s largest open-air shopping mall on the planet. You can buy more things here that you do not need than anywhere I have ever been.
I will try to find some good photos. Not my style, I do not go looking for photos, I take photos when I see a photo. I do not go trying to take photos. If I wanted to take the photo that made you cry, made you angry or made you feel. I would have gone into a tent in Jogja or Bentul with the earthquake, found some extremely old person, and capture the one very difficult to find photo. I saw them in the newspaper?. Aaagh. A total misrepresentation of the truth.
Photography to me should represent the normal and the unique, never trying to make the unique seem normal. What is normal to see is the culture, what is unique is the wonderful quirks of culture, or the throwbacks to former days and former ways.
MTV Rules and all old cultures are being replaced by Soap Operas, Dancing, Bars, Movies, however some old ways still survive.
I can empathize with why the Islamic crazies blew up a bar in Bali, Indonesia so far has strayed away from the teaching of Mohammed their prophet. I have never been in an Islamic type country that practices the rituals of Islam less.
MTV, fashion, Television and movies is changing the Islamic Religion, I am not sure if it will survive. The crazies are not the norm, they are the exception.

I have traveled for nine years, close to 10.
Can you imagine going to the Church and listening to the same sermon for 10 years.
80-90 percent of what you see in a big tourist area is the same, small changes, but the same old same old.
Hard for me to stay in full-on-never-stop tourism areas.
Everyday the same rut for me..., NOT for the person on a two week vacation.
Oke mate, you obviously don't know much about Bali. Your comment about how you can understand how the Islamic terrorists could understandably blow up several restaurants in Bali because it is the most unIslamic practising country in the world, or some bullshit like that, is way off base and uneducated. Just for your information and anyone else reading this, Bali is predominately HINDU, not Muslim. Check yo'self before you wreck yo'self. Asshole!
