      I am very happy that English is the language of tourism in Bali, as it gives us westerners a chance to being informed and participating in the culture there. The Balinese are to be commended on their command of the English language ! I hope to learn a number of words soon, but will never be able to write in Balinese ( after 66 years, I am still learning my native American English ).

      Thank you so much for all information-I am learning much for my next visit which we are planning later this year
      Does anyone know how we can get a visa for 3 months possibly 4months as we are keen to come and study with the gamelan music -we are community musicians and would like to work with a fusion of music incorporating the masks and storytelling
