Log jam

As Bali’s drive for expansion continues, chronic Jakarta-style traffic jams are fast becoming the daily ritual, especially in the south of the island. If you’re going to endure this growing cancer, you need to maintain an open mind and develop some considerable patience. While the Bukit peninsular isn’t nearly as bad as town, its slowly getting there… and once that new Benoa freeway opens up, God help the Bukit’s modest little roads.
Today’s traffic experience occurred on a normally jam-free Bukit backroad. The lumber jacks (pictured) not only managed to cause gridlock for 30 minutes, but also took out the district power lines – a solid effort. To their credit they did a decent job of directing traffic – once they’d cleared up the mess – offering an inferred apology through that iconic Bali smile.

    CUT IT, BURN IT, BUILD IT,.
    REPEAT THIS PROCESS AFTER THE LEASE ENDS
    OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

    It’ a shame that the tree’s term came to an end.

      Figured they chopped the tree because it was a power line hazzard – ironic considering…
