"KAKADO, LITCHFIELD, KATHERINE NATIONAL PARKS"

I have almost forgotten to talk about the tour to the 3 national parks in Nartern territory.
It was 4 day tour in a rush!!
I saw crocodiles, birds, rock arts, waterfalls, and swam in some of the pools.
We slept outside in swags under the stars.

My favorite spot in the tour was the top of "jimjim falls"!!
It was just beyond the word.....haa---.
It took us 2 hours to get to the top, which was quite hard but the view was worth it!
It was thrill to swim in the pool which has a note saying "beware of crocodiles" eventhough I knew that it was safe in the season.

BALI BALI BALI

THE LATEST NEWS!!

I have decided to visit Bali for 3 weeks from 29th of july until 19th of August!!
It costs me $650 for a return ticket and 7 nights accommodation.
Because it is now during the peak season of Bali, prices are generally higher than those in wet season.

But I am sure that it will be great to experience culture shock in unique Balinese traditions.

I hope that I can find Bali in its traditional true colors rather than in resort style under big influences of tourism.

Although tourism has more or less changed the economy and lifestyle of Bali, which is not always the merits in terms of keeping up the tradition and indigenous lifestyle which suits people in the land.

But ironically, I have to thank influences of tourism for giving me more and more opportunity to visit places which are difficult to visit by myself and for assurance of a certain level of safety during the trip.

Have you ever heard of "Kechak"??
It is one of the traditional dance performances in Bali which is performed by a huuuuuuuuuge group of men!!
They dance singing (it sounds more like shouting, honestly......)"kechak kechak kechak kechak kechak kechak kechak kechak kechak......................."
endlessly. shitsukoino tonikaku.

I remember that I was so impressed and felt kind of fear by powerful but also threatening layer of voice when I listened to the CD of this performance in high school.

You can check out what it is like on internet and you will be surprised at its unique style!!

Next time, I would like to talk more about what I am interested in about Bali.
