My Balinese Street Cousins

Wednesday September 30, 2009

This is my mom, Heather, pictured with one of my long-lost cousins in Ubud, Bali. She walked up to Heather with a wagging greeting that would usually only be offered a lifelong friend, and resistance was clearly futile.

My parents tell me that almost all of the dogs in Bali look like me! That’s because all of us share common Australian roots, but unlike me, these dogs live a very difficult and dangerous life on the streets of Bali.
