Tuesday, Apr.5 – A Month in Exotic Bali – Asia in Microcosm. New Boquete residents Patrick and Gabrielle Reynolds present a mini-documentary on their journey to the Indonesian island of Bali,. Staying in a villa in the small, typical village of Batubulan (“Stone Moon” or the stone carvers’ village), Gabrielle and Patrick observed Balinese life as travelers, but were welcomed as friends. They got to know the territory on foot and by scooter, to talk with the expats and locals, visit their homes and enjoy the ritual processions. They met the macaques in the Sacred Monkey Forest, learnt how to create Balinese cuisine, and spent three days with rescued Sumatran. They toured the amazing, 4-story buildings in Green School and Green Village – built entirely of bamboo in fantastic structures with no square corners or even straight lines. “Like Swiss Family Mansion,” a patented boron-salt bath protects four types of bamboo to stand for well over a century, permitting the incredible, organic design – architecture perfected!
