it takes CONSTANT sweeping to keep the garden this free of leaves on the ground,& i mean CONSTANT.

especially when i'm trying to relax or sleep or have a moment of silent introspection.

CONSTANT...

Paul,

I'm enjoying your thread, but are you slipping in some pics. from a previous trip? Ahh, I'm just kidding! :lol: But seriously, I'm following this whole topic, so quiz me at the end if you want. No, Bali is a great place to visit, I can say this, because as you know I was there once myself. I actually still hear from my taxi driver once or twice a year. Thanks for the great pics.

Paul, you don't have to photoshop yourself in front of rice fields. We know you were there. That picture looks like an ad for an Indonesian housing development outside Jakarta, nah, maybe Indomilk.
