When I visited Bali back in 1987, I was very impressed with the terraces that had been constructed to make every possible square inch of land.  These are rice paddies in the mountains of Bali.

The picture above was scanned from a slide.

    A good resurrection of a slide. They bring back memories too. Those terraces are fascinating. I remember learning about them in school and thought I would love to see them on day. It is not from here and many Aussies go their for holidays but Bill and I are not impressed in what we have seen and heard about the tourist activities. It has become a very much a young person’s destination. However, the mountain areas are different.
