I've posted some good diving shots taken at Amed and Tulamben (just up the road from Amed) in the Bali pictures area if you care to have a look. For the most spectacular views you'll want to head to the central mountains. It's never hard to find unspoilt areas of Bali. All one needs to do is to get out of Kuta and the rest of southern Bali. ;)

There's some good stuff there. I went to one or two of those Ubud temples but the clouds weren't on my side and most of the pictures are too dark. It was raining buckets at Tanah Lot - which makes for a different take - but you don't get the postcard pictures.

Everyone seemed pretty happy when I was there - and it was the rainy season.

The American scoffed. “I have an MBA from Harvard, and can help you,” he said. “You should spend more time fishing, and with the proceeds, buy a bigger boat. With the proceeds from the bigger boat, you could buy several boats, and eventually you would have a fleet of fishing boats. Instead of selling your catch to a middle-man, you could sell directly to the processor, eventually opening up your own cannery. You could control the product, processing, and distribution,” he said. “Of course, you would need to leave this small coastal fishing village and move to Mexico City, then Los Angeles, and eventually to New York City, where you will run your expanding enterprise.”

This sums up corporate America perfectly.

If you're not already aware, you should come on over to Ubud, Bali for the 11th annual Ubud Writers and Readers Festival. This is the perfect venue for you to rub shoulders and network with other writers. http://www.ubudwritersfestival.com/

I don't think they want me to submit my Bali book.

Embassies all over the world have emergency telephone numbers that are staffed 24/7. When any citizen finds themselves in a position of imminent danger help is a near as the first public telephone. Even if the Embassy won't cover outright the costs of transportation almost every one of them will provide the transportation providing that the costs be repaid at some later date. In cases where men have taken possession of the passports of women and/or children the Embassy will issue emergency passports on the spot.

That's true for places like the United States and Canada, but is it true for every country?

I can answer these questions, but it will be deleted. PM me if you want information - or just wait for others to post.

You might also check out the Bali photos on this web site as I have been loading up a number of photos including various temples in Bali.

Where is this? Hopefully you'll read this before it's deleted.

already been discussed here: http://www.expat-blog.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=107137 as you see, the thread was closed because it's a rather difficult request to fulfill.

I remember that one. The good old days when entire conversations weren't deleted at a moderator's whim.

Hailey you are 100% correct. I suggest a word with Julien might also be a good idea.

He's either too busy to notice that the new moderators are going out of their way to silence all conversation on this site, or something else.

Usually you have to have outstanding results in all of your examinations before you will be considered for a free scholarship.

True, but there are also scholarships based on financial need and minority status.

Hi All, Please note that some off topic posts were removed from this thread.

Of course they were. Heaven forbid people actually talk to each other around here. We need to make the China forum as silent and desolate as a lot of the other forums. A great way to do that is to delete conversations but leave the spam and troll posts.

HaileyinHongKong posted on the thread The Jordan less traveled on the Jordan forum

If I go - and that's a big if - it will be in August. Probably not the best time to go to the Middle East, but that's when it's going to be. The Dead Sea seems like an interesting place. Are there any parts of it better than others? Or is it all the same no matter where you are?

HaileyinHongKong posted on the thread Do you know... on the Jordan forum

That just strikes me as funny for some reason. Arabic meatballs are better than Swedish meatballs anyway.
