Last Day in Bali

Here are a few photos from our last day in Bali:

First we went to see a performance of the Barong Dance:

I especially loved the Balinese Gamelan orchestra!

Next we visited the Garuda Wisnu Kencana park, which was amazing! The park is a huge rock quarry, where they plan to build an enormous statue of Wisnu (Vishnu) riding Garuda (a bird). The park has a huge amphitheater and features parts of the statue that have been finished thus far.

It was located high up on a hill, which provided great views of the beaches below. After a wonderful lunch, we bid farewell to our wonderful hosts, and flew back to Java.

Tomorrow we have our last performance!

It doesn't seem possible that you're ready for your last performance already. Has the time flown by?

Probably getting ready right now for your concert with the symphony. Break a leg! I'm on the symphony web site as I write this, hoping to find a radio station that might broadcast the concert. I can't wait to see you all when you return - it's worth a flight to Tucson!

I hope the concert went well. Congrats on a successful trip! Safe travels! I can't wait to see more photos.
