The last few pics are of a Kacak (pronounced "Kachak") dance at Uluwatu Temple in Bali and they are reinacting the Ramayana story from the Hindu faith. The last 2 pics are of a Caci (pronounced "Chachee") tribal fighting dance done with whips. The Caci dance was interesting for about 20 minutes but I expected a lot more fighting and it gota kind of repetitive after a while. The Kacak fire dance at Uluwatu Temple in Bali was really good though.

Wow, that would be one hell of a vacation. Most people spend a week, two weeks on vacation running around from place to place trying to see everything. You definitely had a lot of work to do, but it is fun work. I like backpacking and outdoors stuff anyway, so that would be incredible. You are a lucky guy.

I think Ive made up my mind and decided to go to India again in 2 years. Gonna try and make it for a long time but I guess we will see. Probably go south and help out at the Madras Crocodile Bank again and see if I can help out in any way with tiger conservation projects.

I want to try and get to Pakistan during this trip to visit Manghopir in Karachi where you can find lots of mugger crocodiles. Folklore says that these crocs were the head lice of a Sufi Saint which have grown into crocodiles. Somehow I find this story hard to believe but I love to see and experience the ways local populations interact with wildlife and build this wildlife into their culture.
