One reply on “Indonesia linkdump”

As mai adauga neaparat in lista ta: Miguel Covarrubias – Island of Bali.
O carte atotcuprinzatoare despre istoria, obiceiurile, locurile si oamenii de acolo. Acest pictor a fost printre primii occidentali care au debarcat in Bali prin anii ’30 cand a scris si cartea asta.
Chiar si azi e considerata cea mai valoroasa scriere despre Bali. O carte pe care merita sa o citesti chiar daca nu ajungi niciodata in Bali, atat de bine e scrisa.

Desi nu e frumos, dau si un link cu scan-ul cartii.

Scan-ul e totusi infect, asa ca va invit sa cumparati o varianta pe hartie mai buna de pe amazon.
