Letter from Bali – XIX
A few auspicious dates to share with you, reader. It has been two months now since the visitors first arrived so we’ll talk a bit about guests. It has been almost two weeks since the book was completed – finished – The End – can you believe it? – so we’ll talk about that. It has been two days since Earth Day, so we’ll give a renewable mention in that direction and, finally, today is Easter Sunday, when Christians everywhere celebrate the torture and execution of their Lord and Saviour and subsequent resurrection with the giving and devouring of…. chocolate rabbits. Not to be outdone in religious zeal or mystical association the Hindu Balinese are happy to jump on that bandwagon. Since chocolate doesn’t do too well at 27 degrees, would a dyed and painted baby chicken do instead, Mister?
“Good price for Jesus!…”
“I’ll take three, thank you, my good man. What colours would you like, boys?” <crunch, crunch, crunch> “Mmmmmm. Delicious!”
This is the 19th edition of the Letter from Bali, the one where YOU get to name the book. Read on.
