    Hotel News: Local farmers near Tanah Lot are reported to be refusing to sell their lands to make way for a massive Donald Trump Resort project in Bali.

    I really hope they succeed and are not forced to sell. :(

    Oh no.....really hope that doesn't happen.
    So much of Indo. has been spoilt by Western intervention.
    People should immerse themselves in the local culture to really appreciate the land they travel in, not sit in a 5 star gazing out at the "poor" people.....
    I did a (very basic) boat trip to the Mentawaiis in '91, the happiest folk we encountered appeared to have the least, by Western standards. The crankiest , most arrogant were the Western travellers.....
    Live simply.
    Cheers,
    Mark

    If the Donald has his way it'll "Make Indonesia Great Again"
