Mr and Ms White in pictures – ‘To the North’

mr n ms white 100_to the north

This one is tricky. In many parts on Indonesia, including Bali, people tend to give you guidelines according to mata angin (cardinal points [eyes of the wind]). Even if you happen to have a map, can you always be sure that the north they are thinking is the north also on your map? So is it straight, left or right?

*

Translation:

Pak, kalau mau ke candi nya, ke mana ya?  –  Sir, if (I) want (to go) to that temple, where (should I go)?

Ke utara aja, nanti ke timur  –  Just to the north, then (turn) to the east

Jadi masih lurus, kanan atau ke kiri?  –  So (I still have to go) straight, (turn to the) right or to the left?

Mr and Ms White in pictures – ‘Barbars’

How do you call barbars in bahasa Indonesia anyway? Orang buruk? (Bad people?) Or is it just a matter of space between the words…

Translation:

Kamu ingat apa tentang malam kemarin?  –  What* do you remember about last night?

* Mark the word order in Bahasa.

Bar bar Bali saja…  –  Just bars of Bali

Ada barbars di Bali?  –  There are barbars in Bali??
