Most loved her for her aggressive, "Iron Lady" tactics that took a country in severe financial trouble and broke up the Unions that had a strangle hold on the country while eliminating heavily subsidized industries that were state owned.. Maybe modern day leaders like Obama should study her successful policies and initiate them immediate. Britain May Not N...
Editors Note: Reading about the latest edition of the Lonely Planet reminds me of when I first arrived in Bali 16 years ago . The most highly recommended restaurant in Sanur was the Swastika Restaurant which had in it's logo the Swastika, a sign made famous by the War Criminal Hitler.
Also in those days the prices of Bali Real estate rose ever so slowly as the main demand was from Indonesians . Back then you could have purchased a 500 m2 plot of land on the beach for $20,000 and off the beach for $10,000 .Now those same properties are selling for $1,000,000 and $750,000. My, how things have change... more »
A torrential downpour engulfed the Lion Air plane that crashed in Bali at the weekend, a passenger said Monday, describing how the sudden rain storm made the sky look "as if it was night". The Indonesian plane missed the runway as it came in to land on Saturday, slamming into the sea and splitting in two. Dozens of the 108 people on board were injured, but there were no fatalities. "The final approach was fine," French businessman Jean Grandy, 49, told AFP, adding that the descent wa... more »
India and Indonesia, especially Bali, are committed to enhancing the flow of tourists between the two countries. This was revealed during the visit of the Indian Goodwill Parliamentary Delegation to the Bali governor’s office in Denpasar on Monday morning. “We should walk together to enhance the tourist flow between our two countries, which is below its potential as [lack of ] direct connectivity hampers tourism growth. We may encourage several private airlines to think on new connectivity,” said Paban Singh Ghatowar, minister of state (independe... more »

Editors Note: I am very glad to see that Bali's Tourism, businesses support a monorail system.
After 16 years of living here I have concluded it is the only solution that is clean and efficient .
Building more roads will not work because they will soon be clogged with more cars and motorcycles . An electric monorail can be built right down the middle of most roads with little distribution to traffic.It could also be 100 % powered by cheap clean energy from Geo Thermal wells which Bali has plenty of. ... more »
Maybe the number 13 is truly an unlucky number since yesterdays Lion Air crash at the Bali occurred on the 13th Day of the 13th year of this Century. Being a former Captain of my own yacht which has been close to that reef hundreds of times I can tell you that if they would have skidded another 50 to 100 meters the plane would haven broken up and went down off the reef in deep water and many would have drowned in the panic. Still waiting to see if pilot error or mechanical error . Since the plane was relatively new could be flaw in new plane. All survive as Lion Air ditches... more »

Editors Note: This independent article below confirms what I have been predicting for over a decade. Twelve years ago in my local real estate newspaper column I stated "Bali is Hawaii 30 years ago". I predicted that Bali real estate, which had risen steadily each year primarily because of local population growth was going to see new demands from foreign buyers who after the end of the Suharto dictatorship felt more comfortable obtaining control of Bali real estate investments . I was the first one to coin and trade mark "Bali Luxury Villas" and became one of the largest and m... more »

As I already have a substantial investment in a beachfront project I can either wait until I... more »
