Barong dance in a remote Bali village
A trip made to Indonesia also took us to the island of Bali. It was 1980, about forty years have passed. Western tourists were rare. The only presences were those of many young Australians who filled the town Kuta to ride the waves. They remained there, attracted only by the motion of the waves. For the rest the island was still in the hands of the Balinese. So, we rented a moped and for a week we crossed the island far and wide. Among the casual encounters we had was a religious ceremony that involved a whole village at the foot of the Batur volcano.
