I know what you mean. It breaks my heart to see them in the state they are. It seems the few organisations over there are really getting through to the locals now...they have a long, long way to go but at least someones doing somthing. This time i'll make up for not taking anything the other 2 times.
I just love the place...nowhere on earth have i ever felt so welcome, so relaxed and so bloody rich !! On our last trip we had a spare few hours and realised we still had more money than we thought so we went shopping like madmen and hardly batered at all !!! I still have shirts from my first ever Bali trip which is nearly 20 years ago now.....although some didnt last 20 days LOL.
Kuta madness, Nasi Goreng , banana juice, awesome sunsets and surf....her i come...again !!!!
