It’s now March, why is that significant. Well it’s because the first quarter is nearly at an end. It is no longer a new year. How is Bali doing? Bali is actually a real mess but no one is talking about it. The place resembles a ghost town, so many businesses are gone and most will never return. All you can see are shops, restaurants and bars with a sign either saying closed or for rent and no new tenants are moving in. How many people are out of work? How many people have lost their incomes? Well according to the government, everything is normal, in fact everything is ok.
Well what would you expect from compulsive lairs who have only one goal and that is to make as much cash as possible. Everything is not normal, it is a complete mess but lets all just keep pretending everything is fine. The new normal, mass denial of reality. Oh well I guess ignorance is bliss.
When will this mess start to get better is the question on everyone’s minds? That is everyone with an IQ above 100, the average IQ here is 86 so you can pretty much say anything and they will believe it. A true paradise for corrupt politicians. So when will things actually start to improve? The answer is probably next year. That’s right, there has been absolutely no improvement and the first quarter is nearly over so I would imagine it will improve slightly, very slightly by the conclusion of the second quarter and there goes half the year. So give it another half a year and lets call it late December. Yes by then things should start to be getting back to normal but even then it will be much quieter.
This is exactly what one can expect, no this is what people who deny reality deserve. If you cannot be bothered to test for this virus properly and report the real figures, if you cannot be bothered to lock down and contain the spread of this virus and if you convince yourself and others everything along with wearing a mask on your chin is safe and normal and there is nothing to worry about. Well reality will slap you in the face. Bali was smashed in 2020 and it will continue till the end of 2021. The rhetoric will be everything is great, everything is fantastic. Yes tell the locals that when they run out of money and no tourists come visiting soon because everyone knows the place is swarming with COVID 19. Let’s blame someone, lets blame the bule living in Bali. What are they doing? They must be working illegally, many they are making money on the computer. Lets charge them, tax them, anything, we need a scapegoat for everyone’s frustration.
Things will get better when people start getting vaccinated so it is up to foreign countries to vaccinate their people because the population in Bali and Indonesia won’t be vaccinated for many many months to come. It is simply beyond the ability of the officials to organise the most basic of tasks, forget mass immunisation. So we will open when Bali opens, most likely next year and you can once againg enjoy a sensual massage.
