Mount Agung has been on everyone’s minds lately and it would seem it’s going to stay that way until Bali’s greatest volcano decides to calm down a bit. Our hearts go out to those from Karangasem who had to evacuate their homes and villages, now over two weeks ago. It is hard to imagine being in their shoes at this time and we hope that that they will be able to go home soon. It’s easy in retrospect to say that maybe the authorities acted too quickly evacuating all these people so early, but if, as they say, the volcano can still blow its top at any time, what choice did they really have? We have heard there have been hotel cancelations for the next month, which is understandable, but we have also heard that many people are still coming and they’re on their way as normal. So let’s all hope Agung keeps his lid on for another 50 years or more and we can get back to normal as quickly as possible. If not, we’ll all just have to deal with it the best we can, as this is a natural phenomenon and has as much right to happen as you and I have being here. So get on with your life folks, Bali continues being a great place to be.

Meanwhile there are some awesome shows going on around the traps during the next two weeks. There were also some major events going on all over town recently.  Check inside these pages or get online to thebeatbali.com to find out more.  Have a great two week period.
