Case study by Veronica Long and Geoffrey Wall, Department of Geography, University of Waterloo, Ontario, N2L3GL, Canada (1996) Below paper, of which the most important parts are quoted, discusses the mutual benefits of tourism for the village of Jungutbatu on Lembongan for the tourism operators, the tourists and the local residents of the island, after tourism in the 1970s became a major source of income, more or less at the time of the introduction of seaweed cultivation in 1984. Author GD hopes he will be granted permission to publish the entire article soon.
Ring Samton Inn, Ped (accommodation)
Accommodation on Nusa Gede, away from mainstream tourism, an affordable choice, close to FNPF Nusa Penida Bird Sanctuary at Ped, on the north coast of Nusa Penida! "Close to the north beach, where native people lived in harmony with nature, far enough from the crowded throngs for peace and relaxation, yet close enough for every convenience, you'll find The Ring Sameton Inn."
"Nusa Penida Information Center follows the principles of "Fair Trade" tourism, where all the benefits of tourism go directly to the local people, promoting and protecting the special cultural and spiritual heritage of this wonderful island." (Mission statement on their website)
Njoman Djelada alias G(h)ora Sirikan in 1956 published 'Sejarah Bali', The History of Bali. Below article is an attempt at rendering his findings. Presented below is Part One. Of the two versions known to me, this version by I Made Dangin (27 February 1965) seems to be the earliest copy, as I have not yet been able to trace Djelada's original copy. This version will at a later stage be compared with Ida I Dewa Gde Catra's copy (23 March 1990). The Indonesian spelling has been adpated to modern Indonesian spelling (ejaan yang disempurnakan). English translation is forthcoming.
