Bali 1998
In Februari 1998 we were a few days in Bali, at the height of the Asian crisis.
Tourism was slow and the locals endured extra hardship caused by the devaluation of the Rupiah.
 
We saw the terrassed ricefields and the active volcanoGunung Batur and went to the Elephant Cave Goa Gajah.
 
In the evening we witnessed a Kecak or Apedance.
 
In Ubud we saw a Hindu procession.
 
And yes, we also enjoyed the beach at Sanur.
 
Bali is definitely a place to visit multiple times.
