January 7th, 2010. Last day of vacation. *sigh*

Bali is a unique island for many reasons: it is small, relatively sparsely inhabited for a tropical island, and it is Hindu in the midst of a Muslim country. The island is a true example of religious mixology: Hindu, Buddhist and Muslim traditions overlap and intertwine and the people there will be sure to tell you that they all get along. This does seem to be the case. Even with regard to the bombing in Kuta in 2002, the level of understanding of the events that precipitated the tragedy, the rationale and the aftermath, people on Bali seem to see a much larger and clearer picture.

It is really nice to be around.

This is a statue of Ganesha near Seminyak. I adore this deity for many reasons. See if you can guess why:

“Ganesha is widely revered as the Remover of Obstacles and more generally as Lord of Beginnings and Lord of Obstacles of arts and sciences, and the deva of intellect and wisdom. He is honoured at the beginning of rituals and ceremonies and invoked as Patron of Letters during writing sessions.”

Yeah, that is kind of like my ideal dude. Wouldn’t you say?
