Bali Samaritans

An Australian Falls Off His Motorbike and Experiences the Real Bali.

(9/2/2002) During a recent visit to Bali, Australian visitor Mr. Ian Nesbitt, a guest at Bali's Hard Rock Hotel (HRH) threw caution to the wind and decided to go touring on a rented motorcycle. The results of his two-wheel expedition will probably cause Ian to think twice before climbing aboard another motorbike, but left him in no doubt as to the kindness and generosity of the people of Bali.

While descending the notoriously-steep road leading to Uluwatu in the island's south, he lost control of the bike and suffered significant injuries as he and his bike skidded a considerable distance down the steep asphalt road before coming to a complete stop. Fortunately, Ian's misadventure was witnessed by Ms. Ketut Indah and Mr. Ngurah Putra, two employees of the Patra Jasa Resort in Kuta who were also traveling on the same road. Stopping to lend assistance and concerned at the extent of the Australian's injuries, Ketut and Ngurah brought the man to a nearby medical clinic where they offered to pay for his treatment to make up for his shortfall in local currency. Their kindness did not stop there: later they delivered the bruised and battered Mr. Nesbitt back to the Hard Rock Hotel, returning some time later with the motorbike repaired at their own expense.

In appreciation to the two young Balinese for being so conscientious in looking after one of their guests, the management of the Hard Rock Hotel recently called Indah and Ketut back to the hotel where they were formally presented with gifts and certificates of appreciation.
