I was looking forward to reading about the traditions in Bali, and I think you should focus more on that and limit some of the dialogue in here. Provide more descriptions of the action, and work on telling a story with a beginning, middle and end. Good luck in your future efforts! Please take a moment to read and comment on my story, "Dating Safari."
