   High on the slopes of Gunung (Mountain) Agung sits Besakih, the Mother temple of Bali. The Balinese are Hindu Animists in a nation that is mostly Muslim. In fact Indonesia has more Muslims then all of the Arab world combined.

   I first became interested in Indonesia, especially Bali in 1995. I had a sailboat & wanted to circumnavigate, but I first had to find an sustainable income. What better way then to buy and sell my way around the world? I had read about the arts & crafts of Southeast Asia & the masks of Bali. So off to Bangkok & Bali. Bangkok was hot & humid, but I thought. "Bali is an island".

   When my plane landed at Nugrah Rai Airport on Bali's southern coast I wasn't sure I'd made the right choice. Bali was as hot & humid as Thailand.

   I found a driver to take me to Ubud in Bali's central highlands. After arriving in the famous cultural heart of Bali it didn't take long to find a beautiful little home stay with a nice little pool at a very reasonable price. After a dip in the pool and a nice lunch, I made my first friend in paradise.

   Made was one of the employees of my little home stay & the first of many, friends I was to make in Bali. The Balinese are some of the friendliest people I've ever met & it didn't take me long to fall deeply in love with their island. Black & White sand beaches, volcanoes, rainforests, Music, Dance and art are everywhere. 

   If you ever get to Bali, I'm sure you'll join me in my fervent love of the "Isle of the Gods." -Al
