    I think this is main reason for why Bali is so special (and many other places in Indonesia) is that you are very fond of your roots and tradition! You are proud of them! I wish in Thailand we could dress more tradional and less mini shorts and skirt!

    It was interesting to find out that the main religion is Hindu although it makes sense given the multitude of temples. Batuan is breathtaking!

    I have always wanted to travel and see Bali for myself. Hopefully I will some day. This Batuan temple looks very majestic against the wonderful background landscape. Love the photo of the Balinese ladies.

    It always mystifies me how amazing the architecture of the past was with the limited tools that they had to build things. I would love to see the Batuan Temple as it looks so incredible.
