These photos are images of Bali, the world-famous island province of Indonesia that is one of those places that instantly enters one’s dreams upon learning of its existence. Bali is an environmental nirvana, white sandy beaches that disappear under clear blue water, a lush mountainous inland with rice fields and jungle, exotic monkeys, fish, and birds; it is a truly unimprovable paradise. Then there is the culture. The country is steeped in rich musical, culinary, aesthetic and religious traditions. Ornate dancers, colorful lanterns, marvelous gardens, and ancient cities. Furthermore, most of Bali’s population practices Balinese Hinduism, and as a result, the island is home to some of the world’s most marvelous temples, sacred structures nearly too beautiful to exist.
