THE NOT SO SAVAGE FILES- BALI
The nightmarish events that have taken place since September 2001, have had an effect on everyone, in their own way. Many were affected directly; the rest of us who were more fortunate, are still left to make the most of a world that is distinctly different to the one we lived in previously. This project is not about jumping up and down, pointing fingers, or waving flags. Neither is it about hiding in your house, peeping through your curtains. it is about putting your boots on, stepping out into the sunlight, and getting out there. There are so many great people in the world. Follow my project, and you will meet some of them, as I travel from Bali to New York City, sharing my adventures with you on this website. Perhaps the world is not such a SAVAGE place! I consider this page to be the opposite of CNN. CNN go to extraordinary lengths to bring you as much bad news as possible. This page shows you all things good about the friendly island called Bali.

...and this extract from a letter to the Editor in the Byron Shire Echo, written by Yves Deyris, who recently returned from Bali.
"The tens of thousands of young (backpackers) who wander the globe...are building what may be the only example of a truly global community..." This article by Michael Elliot, from Decmber's edition of Time magazine was sent in recently.
Here's a simple, but inspirational poem, sent in from Taiwan, and illustrated with drawings by young children aged 3-12 from 25 different countries around the world.I bet it makes you stop and think!Click here
Images Of Bali is the best photographic website I have seen. Beautiful photos, and easy to use format.
