Whether readers are planning a trip to Bali or just fantasizing about one, "Journey Through Bali & Lombok" makes an unforgettable guide. Containing more than three hundred color photographs, this breathtaking volume brings you from the trendy beaches of Seminyak to the Monkey Forest at Sangeh and the hot springs at Kintamani to sunken wrecks off Tulamben. Through Greenway's lens, readers climb Lombok's smoldering Mt. Rinjani volcano and explore the nearby rustic islands of Gili and Nusa. Greenway was a longtime resident of Bali and still considers it his spiritual home. His photographs capture the region's stunning natural landscapes and the lives and experiences of the Balinese people--including their renowned religious festivals, gamelan music, and painting and craft traditions. For example, an image of the cliff-top temple of Pura Luhur Ulu Watu during a sunset dance performance--complete with hypnotic chanting and fire-walking--reveals intriguing aspects of ancient Balinese culture.
