Bored in Paradise?

The Trivial Entertainments of Bali's Leisure Class.

(9/9/2002) What do Superman's hair, the source of the Yangtze River, and the word for "thank you" in Hungarian have in common?

And why does any of this matter in Bali?

Trivia quiz nights. An increasing number of local restaurants and bar hosts the fun challenge of a trivia quiz. Full of good humor and offering a light distraction for Western visitors who, perhaps, have exceeded their personal quota for the many indigenous cultural outings available on the island. Trivia Nights pit the wits of competing teams, vying for the coveted title of Trivia Master.

Some of the places visitors can put their trivial knowledge to use in Bali include: The Cat and the Fiddle Pub in Sanur on Jalan Batur Sari, which hosts quiz nights on Fridays beginning at 8:30 p.m.. The Kura-Kura Restaurant on Jalan Raya Seminyak also hosts a quiz every Wednesday night starting at 8:30 p.m..

Almost every tourist area in Bali has a trivia night. Keep your eyes posted for the tell-tale banner indicating time and place for the next match of trivial pursuits and yout chance to claim the bragging rights to a head full of trivia.

Oh, we almost forgot: Superman parts his hair on the right, the source of the Yangtze River is in Tibet, and the Hungarian word for "thank you" is "köszönöm."

Now you know.
