-I saw a meter long lizard slowly climbing down a tree. Baby Komodo? Probably just a smaller monitor.
-No one uses the Balinese script; they just use roman characters. Pretty much no one knows how to read or write it, but heir spoken language is definitely different from the other kind of Indonesian.

-There are beggars, but not too many.
-Most of the art is Hindu. A lot of the paintings are very similar to each other, but there are some that are really different. Ubud is known for painting, wood carving, metallurgy, and stone carving.
-People here speak English MUCH better than in Korea.
