My recent arrival in Bali could be described somewhere in between a hard and soft landing. I am familiar with Southeast Asia from months of travel in Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Phillippines, and Thailand and the superficial flavor of those countries is definitely here. However, it differs in so many other ways that I can't quite yet wrap my head around. I guess my general travel pattern of late has been the crash course version, maybe what some would even describe as wreckless. I put a good chunk of my faith into what I felt to be a solid communications from the founder of the Bukit Peninsula Sustainability Project and have been very pleasantly surprised by the amount of hospitality, warmth, and open-mindedness from the founders and incoming project participants. We are all in accordance with the overall vision and potential of permaculture and it is great to finally be around some like-minded people. One of the most stunning things we have seen in the area, especially considering the massive overdevelopment occurring in most of Bali is the quiet, white sanded beach, known locally as Secret Beach due to its (thankfully) secluded and unknown location on the island. I look forward to collaborating with the full team of ten people in the coming weeks as we start to asses the different land options, working with local families, create community building events, and yes designing for the land!
