    No Bules, no complaints.

    Who's at fault?

    Is It Me?

    Every so often Bali Discovery Tours (hearafer BDT) comes up with this info-letter purporting to bring news of Bali, but being a marketing organ (as in kidney, liver, testes) actually has a slightly schizophrenic function of trying to "inform" us and sell "us" to the the marketing world at the...

    Amazed by the Green School

    I was fortunate enough recently to visit Bali. I expected all the usual – sun, sand, sightseeing. What I didn't expect was an epiphany about how my daughters were being educated – or miseducated. An excursion to the Green School in Ubud amazed and inspired me – particularly as I watch my 12...
