    Bali is amazing.
    Wow!

    Bless the people for their willingness to share their lives/culture.
    Thanks, to you and Don, for recording your experiences; so that those of us who will likely never be able to go there, experience it through your eyes.

    Couldn't believe there was a kookaburra in a cage! It's funny, we're quite used to seeing budgies and cockatoos caged, but somehow a kookaburra in a cage is just so wrong.

    I'm glad you're enjoying Bali! We are very much. It's a unique and wonderful place - much more adventures to come. Snorkling trips, elephant riding, and temple ceremonies all to come.

    I have a new blog post done
    This time it's about monsters, a temple ceremony, snorkelling, a cremation ceremony, riding an elephant and some other stuff I can't remember right now

    Use the link in my sig line.

    If that won't open for you use http://alisonarmstrong.blogspot.com

    As always click on the pics to make them bigger.


    So enjoying WTT - thank you ISU for live streaming!!!!! Kostner's and Suzuki's SP's, Dai's SP and LP, T&T's SP, Jeremy's SP

    I think there's more I should add to that list but I'm tired and my head hurts trying to remember. Also the internet crapped out for a few minutes so I missed D&W's FD and from what I've heard I'll probably be swooning over that too - off to watch it now. And Dai's LP again.

    Wow!

    What a "reward" at the end of that long overnight trek.
    Thanks for allowing me to share another culture with you; and experience so much through your wonderful narrative and photos.

    Hey thanks skates and Buzz. Bali really was a wonderful experience. I know people who were there 20 and 30 yrs ago when it was still largely "unspoilt", but what's good is that tourism has brought prosperity, and at the same time the Balinese have held fast to their culture and way of life and spirituality. The Balinese have more or less sacrificed the southern peninsula where all the best beaches are (and all the drunken Aussies) in order to keep the rest of the island for themselves where you can still find the real Bali. Further north Ubud (where we stayed) is a tourist mecca for sure, but at least the emphasis there is on culture and the arts and yoga (rather than the drunken beach culture) and, as I said has brought prosperity to the people.

    Interesting reading your blog here in Sedona Arizona, Alilou. Red canyon country, we did a short walk at twilight today after arriving and plan a good long hike for tomorrow. . .

    I read about your climb to see the sunset after returning from a time at the hot tub and pool with an Asahi beer at hand. The moon is full, we got lucky.

    The world is full of so many beautiful places and experiences, isn't it?

    Sounds like you're having a seriously fabulous time Japanfan. Hot tubs and full moons - how wonderful. Just that little bit gave me the feel of your experience. And hiking in that part of the world. Sedona is on my wish list - has been for a long time. From what I've heard/seen in pictures definitely one of the world's beautiful places.

    Finally have a new blog post done. Yay!

    We're in Australia - first in Canberra with family, then near Coffs Harbour with more family, and now near Mullumbimby staying with a friend. The weather has mostly been our friend, but since it's fall here now it's much colder than Bali

    As usual, use the link in my sig line. If that won't open use http://alisonarmstrong.blogspot.com

    Those of you with a slow internet connection will no doubt be pleased to hear I learned a lot about uploading photos while in Canberra and the photos in the blog are much smaller so should open a lot quicker now.

    Alilou, send me a PM when you're back in Van so we can arrange a skating/dinner evening.

    Yes, as soon as I get back. We can have a big Vancouver Really-not-at-Worlds get together
    I will even skate!

    Thanks again skatesindreams. I love that you always comment on the latest blog
    Even having grown up in Australia I still find the birds, animals, plants and landscape here amazing. It's still a thrill to see a platypus in the wild. It would be to see a koala too, especially since they're becoming quite rare. They have no natural predators, but loss of habitat is a problem. They're so specialized. There's over 300 varieties of eucalyptus trees in Australia, and the koala eats the leaves of only four of them

    This is my last night in Oz. Tomorrow we fly from Sydney to Hong Kong, and the next day we fly to Vancouver. Home again to my other home town for the whole summer

    Back in Vancouver and seriously jet-lagged after a 12 hour flight from Hong Kong. Lacking sleep but sure catching up on movies - My Week With Marilyn, Game Change, Bridesmaids, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, and at least 2 more but can't remember. Too tired. Hope I sleep tonight. It's ccccccccold here but good to be "home" (where ever that is these days)

    Finally the last blog post about our time in Australia is ready. It took so long because first I created a whole NEW BLOG

    Was disenchanted with the old site. Am now at wordpress. Much better

    Have hours and days of work ahead of me re-sizing all the photos on the earlier posts. Oh joy. But still really happy with the change.
