Dave talks Bali United FC and Supporter Culture with Thailand’s “Ari Football Explorer”

While attending an ASEAN Cup football (soccer) match between Bali United FC and a club from Singapore, i offered a few thoughts to some documenters from Thailand who were travelling around the tournament sites making lovely video dispatches. around the 21 min mark, i riff about about supporter culture, singing, drumming and so on, plus accurately predict the final score of 3-1 for Bali United.

New Yellow Bridge Connecting Nusa Lembongan and Ceningan in Bali Indonesia

Another visit to Nusa Ceningan, Bali, Indonesia for a walk across the new “Yellow Bridge” which replaced the previous bridge which collapsed killing several folks who were on way to a ceremony. The new bridge shares the same super structure (i think) though its slightly wider now and with a metal bridge deck. Still made for pedestrians and scooters/bikes – of which now two can sorta…almost… pass.

This bridge connects Nusa Ceningan with Nusa Lembongan in Bali. Indonesia. This clip shows the influx of tourists who come to take photos of the charming bridge crossing a lovely channel plied by various boats. https://youtu.be/Z3zsH6dz1jw

Ceremony Procession in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia

A wee snippet from a coffee shop balcony of a ceremonial parade in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia. The island residents mostly practice a mix of Hinduism and Buddhism (most of the rest of Indonesia is predominantly Muslim) and there are frequent ceremonies, constant offerings, and shrines, temples and the like most everywhere. https://youtu.be/rHArX6fAE5w

Guest book at Ceningan Resort on Nusa Cenengan, Bali, Indonesia

No secret that I love to make scrapbooks – both building them and showing them – and sometimes even encourage my friends to do so. In this case, Robert Scales made one as a guestbook for his resort in Bali. I gave it a little tuneup and encouragement and then, it lived at the bar and was filled with wonderful words until… One day, the bar burned down and sadly, the book with it (plus all kinds of great ephemera he had collected from world travels including loads from his home province in Quebec, unlike the booze, unreplaceable objects d’ art). I’m glad some of these comments are preserved digitally as well as the Curious George cover and boardgame backboard.

Seems like he needs a new one, so maybe I need to make a trip there to deliver who’s coming with me?
