Bali Dipwa I

















“In 1597 a fleet of Dutch ships … discovered Bali. He [Cornelius Houtman, ship’s captain] and his men fell in love with the island and made excellent friends with the king … After a long sojourn in the island, some of the Dutch returned to Holland and report the discovery of the new “paradise”;




others refused to leave Bali.”






Miguel Covarrubias (Island of Indonesia, 1937)
