Scenic Sunday # 65: Bali

I’m basically a farm boy from Indiana who has been blessed in many ways.  I was able to go to college, became a high school mathematics teacher, get a Master’s degree, teach mathematics in college and then switch to computer science.

In 1985 I began teaching computer science at Heidelberg College in Ohio, and in 1987 I was chosen to be part of an exchange program with a college in China.  The Heidelberg team was to teach during summer in China, but due to a difference in academic calendars we Americans had a couple of free weeks at the beginning of summer.  Since we were to enter China through Hong Kong, it was decided to spend part of that free time in Hong Kong and on the island of Bali in Indonesia.

The picture above is a scan made from a slide which was taken one morning on Bali.  I had gotten up early and walked along the beach past the place we were staying.  I rounded a point and entered a small cove.  This little collection of huts was on the beach across the cove.  I felt as if I had stumbled upon the set of South Pacific!

    What a lovely view!! Great, too, that you’ve been able to enjoy your travels! Math and I just never became friends; glad you were though, lol! My dad was great at math – he was able to do lots in his head and loved beating the grandkids as they tried to add or subtract on their little calculators!

    Love the view. How wonderful that you had such a nice opportunity.

    Beautiful shot George.
    I can’t help but wonder what that cove looks like today. Let’s hope it still looks like South Pacific and not South Beach. 🙂
