Gday again folks and welcome to the weekly for the latest in and around Bali. What a week we've had with visa on arrivals going up to $35 dollars for entry into Indonesia. We did get a few emails and messages about how terrible this was, with one lady saying that as a fly in, fly out person, who does the off shift in Bali suggesting that it would be the difference to her choosing to come here or not?? I can't believe that fifteen bucks would make any difference and in actual fact think as per the story on page 33, agree that the tourist numbers will continue to increase at a rate we haven't seen in many years. There is a reason that the big hotel chains are putting up hotels on the island as quickly as possible and that isn't for tax deduction reasons. It's because people like to come to Bali and holiday, and if you do Bali the right way, it is probably the best place to relax in the world. As far as this writer is concerned you could take the VOA to $100 and it wouldn't stop me from coming. Rock on Bali….The fact that the Balinese people make Bali such an attractive destination is a credit to the forward thinking powers that  be. Some decisions make people happy and others make people question things. One problem in particular is the issue on the island of stray dogs. The advent of the rabies epidemic caused all manner of problems for the islands good name and many knee jerk reactions happened as a consequence of this. At the end of the day there really is no other way than to get rid of them, that's that. (Oh, I can't wait to see the hate emails next week)With regards to the subject we did get an email that I thought I would share with you all. The email is as follows:
 Dear Editor:Governor Made Mangku Pastika's knee-jerk order to kill stray dogs on sight in a misguided attempt to prevent rabies is not only extremely cruel, it is also ineffective. Many of the animals who face extermination are friendly neighborhood dogs who have already been vaccinated against rabies and pose no threat to residents. Killing off these dogs will only create a vacant niche and a spike in the food supply which will allow surviving—and unvaccinated—feral dogs to reproduce at a faster rate. This results in an endless cycle of killing.The only humane and effective way to control rabies is by implementing a comprehensive rabies vaccination and spay/neuter program. Vaccinating dogs against rabies ensures that strays will not spread this disease to humans, and spaying and neutering will stop the problem at its source, by preventing more dogs from being born only to end up on the streets. Dogs who have not been sterilized are also three times more likely to bite. Humane education in schools is also needed to teach children how to avoid bites and what to do if they are bitten. Each of us can do our part to prevent rabies and keep dogs off the streets by having our canine companions vaccinated and sterilized. Sincerely,
Jason Baker Vice-President of International OperationsPETA Asia So there it is folks, another week slipped by without us even knowing it. I hope the Blues take the third game as well as they took the first two games, I hope the Pies actually have a win over a lesser side than them and I hope the elections happen without incident in Indonesia this week and that the people get what they vote for. I sincerely hope that the most of you stay safe, happy, healthy and always remember, people will judge you anyway so don't live your life trying to impress others, live your life impressing yourself. Enjoy Your Week,
Kuta Weekly
