Day 359: The Best Guide on Bali
Two weeks ago my husband's son, Jason Madson and his wife Karen (pictured here) arrived in Bali, Indonesia for a two week vacation. A longtime friend of ours, Dana Lee, who is a professional guide on Bali, agreed to assist them during their visit and help make introductions to "the real Bali" including members of his family. In addition to touring the island Dana arranged for them to take a class in wood carving from a master craftsman. Both Jay and Karen are artists and deeply appreciate what it means to be a craftsman in the old tradition. It is thanks to the kindness of Dana that these special opportunities were available to make their trip a "once in a lifetime" experience. All hail and thanks to Dana for helping to make this happen.
