my thinking on where I holiday given all these reasons not to go to Bali.
Can't go to the U.S. or U.K. or Spain 'cause of recent attacks, plenty of death and distruction from natural disasters elsewhere, and growing problems with muslim fundamentalists.
Bird flu about as well, and mafia and crime driven business everwhere that I would not want to support.
I believe that it is the right moral, and safe decision to holiday right here at home, in good old Western Australia.
We certainly don't treat our original inhabitants like the Balinese get treated by the Javanese rich people. I may just start my holiday in Halls Creek, where the local indigenous people demonstrate the equalities that exist in this fair country of ours.
Maybe I could follow this up with a day or two in glorious Broome, being careful to avoid drunk British hooligans who have been known to kick a man close to death in the past.
From there, up to the far North, avoiding the crocodiles, and / or the box jellyfish, which take at least a tourist a year.
Back down south, avoiding mosquito borne Ross River Virus, and for a pleasant dip at the beach (hope this is a shark free day?)
Must remember not to fall for the old "Falconio trap" of stopping on a remote road and getting a bullet in the head.
Off to the night spots in Northbridge at night, where young glue sniffing indigenous people engage in running battles with anyone who wants to entertain them, amongst gangster owned, drug funded nightclubs and bars.
Yes, Western Australia is the home of fairness and social equality, I must book into the Observation City Hotel, previously owned by Allan Bond, one of many fine upstanding Western Australian businessmen (before he went to jail)
On second thoughts, do you have any specials coming up for Bali soon Lucy, I need a break from the violence, corruption and social inequalities that I am surrounded by every day. Bali has its share, but tell me where doesn't??
