Bali is unlike any place I’ve ever been. As I sit on my bungalow’s patio in Ubud I’m struck by the strange juxtaposition that is Bali. It’s a place where new and old, ancient and modern coexist. Pop music thumps loudly from bar on Monkey Forest Road, and behind it I hear traditional Balinese ceremonial music; there is a dance performance taking place.
