Testing both dark brem aka black-rice wine (IDR 25,000.- per 0.5-litre bottle) and golden arak of grappa quality (IDR 20,000.- per litre) and afterwards exploring the Taman Tirta Gangga, a traditional but still young water palace with pools, moats, canals, fountains and statues which was built by Amlapura’s water-loving rajah in 1948 CE and was damaged in the 1963 CE eruption of Gunung Agung and again during the state-instigated political killing that rocked Indonesia two years later.

Watching the graceful, typically Balinese legong dance, characterised by flashing eyes and quivering hands, performed by a young girl elaborately made up and dressed in gold brocade.

Wandering the roads of E Bali where rice terraces spill down hillsides under swaying palms, where wild volcanic beaches are washed by pounding surf and where age-old villages soldier on with barely a trace of modernity.
