This is the first chance we met number one person in one country. With our nervous feeling, we tried to communicate with him. We a little bit surprised that Mr. Nathan can speak Indonesian very well. He asked us so many things, and he said thatBali is a beautiful island. At last one nice painting was given to him as the souvenir from us.
