BALI LOW ...


A funny thing happened yesterday on my way to Bali. I went to Miyazaki, a small, resort on the island of Kyushu in Japan, instead. Let me explain: I was supposed to attend a meeting in Bali this week but we changed locations at the last minute, based on security concerns resulting from last month's execution of three Indonesian Militants. So, now I'm at the Sheraton Grande Ocean Resort in Miyazaki ... and boy do I feel safer. "Feast your eyes on the Pacific Ocean from every guest room," says the hotel brochure. Unfortunately, that's where the feast ends. I just returned from breakfast where I was surprised to see that the buffet includes "Salted Fish Guts" and "Dried Flying Fish from Nichinan." Bon Appetit!
