When George Bush was President and other stories from the road

When George W Bush was President of the United States of America, we sometimes intimated that we were Canadian while we were traveling.

Tanalot Temple, Bali, Indonesia (video)

Uluwatu Temple, Bali (video)

During our stay in Southern Bali at Bingin Beach, we rented motorbikes to visit the famous cliff temple of Uluwatu. Some of the hills are steep but the road is basically good.
