  • Description

    THE DUTCH FOREIGN MINISTER, MR JOSEPH LUNS, HA BEEN TOURING THE ISLAND OF BALI WITH HIS INDONESIAN COUNTERPART, DR SUBANDRIO.

    SOME BACKGROUND INFORMATION:--
    THE MINISTERIAL PARTY WAS HEADQUARTERED AT A PRESIDENTIAL REST HOUSE IN THE HILL CENTRE OF TAMPAKSIRING, WHICH IS IN CENTRAL BALI. THE MAIN BUSINESS TALKS WERE HELD THERE.

    THE KETJAK DANCE DERIVES ITS NAME FROM THE CONTINUOUS "CHUCK-CHUCK" YELLING OF 100 OR MORE MEN SQUATTED IN AN OPEN RING. THIS IS THE ONLY ACCOMPANIMENT, AND RANGES FROM LOW MURMURS TO HIGH-PITCHED SCREAMS.

    THE BARONG DANCE TELLS OF A MYTHICAL LION, THE BARONG, PLAYED BY TWO MEN IN AN ELABORATE COSTUME, AND ITS FEUD AGAINST AN EVIL CREATURE CALLED RANGDA, REPRESENTING THE NIGHT.

    SANUR BEACH, WHERE THE MINISTERS WENT SWIMMING, IS ON THE SOUTH-EAST COAST OF BALI, A SHORT DRIVE FROM THE CAPITAL DEN PASAR. A NEW MODERN TOURIST HOTEL IS BEING BUILT THERE TO COMPLETE AGAINST THE OLD DUTCH-BUILT HOTELS.
