SUDAJI FALLS, BALI, Guest Post by Tom Scheaffer

With thanks to my brother, Tom Scheaffer, who spent three weeks in Indonesia earlier this year, for his report on the idyllic community of Sudaji. 

I had an unforgettable stay in Sudaji Village in northern Bali at the Omunity Centre, an eco-friendly hotel with thatched roofed bungalows and vegetarian food.
After arriving we headed off for Sudaji Falls hiking downhill through rice paddies, then down 380 steep steps to the river. There are several waterfalls at the end of the trail and it is truly a tropical paradise.
The next day we all participated in the Peace Run, an international torch relay event to promote peace and understanding in all cultures.
The local Balinese organized ox cart races in the village center, and then we all ran through narrow streets and along rice paddies and visited local schools. 
The whole village turned out to welcome the run and we all finished back at Omunity Centre for a vegetarian feast and musical performances.
