Ranging from knowledgeable to subjective, serious to humorous, sarcastic to empathetic to daring and with a whiff of moral pondering, Jean Couteau’s articles share philosophical and social considerations no travel journalist would know, nor would an academic anthropologist dare to express. Jean takes us deep into the heart, mind and soul of Bali.

Supported by Phoenix Communications.

Mulai dari pengetahuan hingga pendapat subyektif, yang serius hingga lucu, sarkastis hingga empati ataupun menantang dan dengan sedikit perenungan moral, artikel-artikel Jean Couteau berbagi pertimbangan filosofis dan sosial yang tak diketahui jurnalis perjalanan, dan juga antropolog akademik pun tak akan berani mengungkapkannya. Jean membawa kita jauh ke dalam hati, pikiran dan jiwa Bali.
