  1. It must be an fantastic and impressive experience to witness such a ceremony. In my youth I used to see pictures in schoolbooks about these proceedings. At that time Bali still was a Dutch colony. I missed the opportunity of ever going there (regretfully).

    • Christel, thank you. It does have that feeling. It is so tall that the electrical company had to remove the lines crossing the street. The tower must have been about 12 meters high. I can’t even image how heavy it must have been.
