"Balinese Modern Times" (8/10)

The so called "Last Paradise on Earth" has found to his way to deal with its Balinese Modern Times.

Today Bali is a mixture of: original traditions - kept alive, tropical nature - becoming building land for growing industrialized cities and tourist holiday resorts, that "re-built" the tropics in their parks, gardens or golf courses.

Traditional life is tied up with with all common modern influences of our time, as it appears at many other places in this world, too.
A global holiday destination with so many tourists from all over the world cannot stay a "middle-age museum" for all times, just to attract nostalgic travellers.

The contrast between traditional, spiritual life and daily commercial practice can occur quite drastically and  sometimes it may remind of that traditional Balinese dualism of "gods and demons" of "good and evil".
