I am an American living currently in Berlin, Germany where I am the Elementary school principal of an International school. I moved to Berlin after 6 years in Bali and, much as I love Berlin, it was a shock! Holding on to to the house we built in Bali helps get me through the dark cold winters. My kids are adopted from Vietnam (we lived in Hanoi for 4 years) and they are in Gr. 12 and Gr. 11 so soon moving on to a new phase in their lives! We love the life style in Bali and think you will too. My favorite thing is to float in the pool as I read my book and sip from a cold drink....heaven!
