No, I didn't enjoy that book and haven't seen the movie. I travel a lot to Bali, as Australia is close. Actually, I am in the kitchen of a rented villa in Seminyak as I write. Just had a Kopi Bali and am off for a latish breakfast! LOL!
It's truly magic place and I attempt to tread lightly when here. There is a certain power in this island that engenders respect, once again tying in to Karma and the intricate belief systems of these people
