An Island of Many Gods: Bali's Oasis of Calm

International Herald Tribune Article in Praise of Sayan Ridge - in Ubud's Backyard.

(2/4/2002) Sometimes the Press does get it right.

A case in point, the very excellent article on Bali appearing in The International Herald Tribune Wednesday, January 30, 2002, edition written by Michael Richardson entitled "An Island of Many Gods: Bali's Oasis of Calm."

In a remarkably thoughtful piece of writing, Richardson explores the cultural values existing in Bali that have permitted the island to preserve itself as an oasis of peace over the past period of trouble in other parts of the Indonesian archipelago. By focusing on the community of Sayan, located on the outskirts of Bali's famous art community of Ubud, the article explores how the people of Bali find harmony living on the slopes of a volcanic island populated by gods, demons, and residents from around the world representing every religious stripe.

An excellent read describing how Bali continues to thrive, even in a post 911 world. Read the International Herald Tribune via the link below.
