Indonesia: Bali 1 - Tropical Paradise

Indonesia: Bali 1 - Tropical Paradise

The Republic of Indonesia is a long thin chain of over 17,000 islands. Halfway along Indonesia's southern edge the province of Bali rises out of the Indian Ocean. Some say it is the last paradise on earth. Host Sian Richards couldn't disagree with them as she explores this tropical delight. Bali's rice fields we see stretch sumptuously across the island's green slopes. Rice is a staple of each Indonesian meal and to this day it is still farmed by hand, grain by grain. The Balinese leave a spoonful of rice on their plates at the end of every meal to thank Demisuri, the Hindu patroness of rice, and there are shrines to her all across the country. Speaking of food, Chef Evah will prepare a traditional Balinese feast of roast duck in banana leaf (Bebek et Tutu) as the evening meal. Sian learns about Balinese masks, which are made of a light flexible wood called pulle, from her guide, Oka. The Balinese mask maker holds a special place in society here because he straightens its connections to the Gods who speak through art and dance. Also, to the Balinese, the body is the sacred temple of the soul; they are famous for their Balinese massage, as well as aromatherapy, reflexology and shiatsu. 07/09DE JSCA 30 min.
