Been to Bali... It's killer! Where you moving? Phone Post 3.0

In for more info.

What are the dangers there for Americans? Laws? Police corruption? Taxes?

I know several people who have lived/visited there. They say people are super friendly, food is amazing and cheap, Bali is the shit, and the language is easy to learn.

I wish I was going to Bali, I'll probably get a chance to visit, but I'll be moving to an expat community that not even close to Bali. Phone Post 3.0

Are you excited? Phone Post 3.0

I was there for about 6 weeks once backpacking and surfing. Mostly Bali and Lombok and the Gili Islands. All were awesome. Friendly people, beautiful places.

I have a friend who lived in Jakarta for a year he pulled a ton of local chicks, said they were psyched to sleep over in a house that had AC lol. Phone Post 3.0

What are you going to do there? Day labor?

I was hoping to get a gig at one of the international schools teaching English. My wife's company is getting her a work visa, but I'm on my own if I want work while we're living there. Phone Post 3.0

I live on Bali since 9 years ago. Came he4 for a spiritual sportcamp, now I can knock people out out from a distance. Its great for holliday I guess but yeah, people burn trash so that sucks.

I visited Jakarta last year for a week. I stayed in Glodok, which is the "Chinatown" of Jakarta.
