Java Jamboree: A Touch of Bali

Being the largest tourist destination in Indonesia, Bali, the island between Java to the west and Lombok to the east needs no introduction. This island is where Indonesia's minority Indonesian Hindus concentrates. Over 90% of the population practise Balinese Hinduism. The island is renowned for its highly developed arts, including dance, sculpture, painting, leather, metalworking and music and one of the privileges my friends and I had when in Taman Mini Indonesia was to witness a Balinese dance performed by two young boys under the tutelage of an adult dance instructor. Probably not as famous as some other Balinese dances like the Barong and the Kecak, the lively genggong or frog dance nevertheless was a joy to watch...

Dear Thomas, Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment. Been to your blog; and I suppose you went to Jerusalem with the church; otherwise, how could you get to go through the border.
