    @Stephanie Brookes, I saw the dance, phew.... no kidding, they sure can move! I love their description of Rote, the kingdom- it makes everything sound magical. I was sad to hear how hard people work for just 75 US cents per day but the woman seemed to love her job on the ocean, so maybe it's all a matter of perspective? Thanks, really enjoyed this and the beautiful photos by @DAVID METCALF

    @Stephanie Brookes Intriguing and inviting post Stephanie - thank you: "Rote is still a kingdom, and we still maintain ancient traditions,” she said, and went on to explain how the land is divided into two domains. One is known as Sunrise and one is known as Sunset."

    @Stephanie Brookes, I love the photos and your detailed descriptions. You wrote, "After the barong pays a visit, it is important to make an offering of a canang sari (a flower offering) containing money." How interesting and the photo was stunning. Lawar sounds tasty! Thanks for sharing.

    Fascinating travelogue. Great to know some cultures still value heritage and spirit of place so much that they wouldn't wanna change the old ways for anything. Social ostracism is still common for intercaste or racial/creed marriages in many states of our nation. And the echoes of Hinduism that ricochet off the temples of S.E. Asia and the far east always make me feel connected with the orient at a deeper level. We share so many Gods and so much nomenclature!
