experiences in Bali

These photos were taken on the Indonesian 'paradise' island of Bali. It is a truly beautiful island but the modern age has descended on it! And not for the better.

These two photos show how difficult it is to walk on the sidewalks (and we grumble here in Jordan!) and how the people travel around. There are so many motorbikes with whole families perched on them. This photo is typical, with the parent wearing a crash helmet and the child completely unprotected. They all wind in and out at speed, undertaking and overtaking, but the amazing thing is everyone is so laid back, no road rage here. The Balinese people are very gentle and kind and don't seem to get angry about anything. T
