Time. It streams in what seems forward to our human perception, a steady march into the future. We humans have a hard time detaching the meaning of our lives from time. How old we are?

... visas before travelling. Well, if Melbourne is awful, then Denpasar is absolutely atrocious. There are 3 distinct steps to getting through immigration in Bali.
1) Pay for a visa on arrival, for those of you coming here it costs about $35 US, although most major currencies are accepted - it cost me €19. The point here, however, is that you have to queue for what seems like forever (although you will come to realise that it was relatively quick) to ...
