Rio Helmi is one of the most extraordinary characters in Bali. He’s best known as a photographer of culture, travel, buildings and food (sometimes), but there is much more to him than that (as if that wasn’t enough). I wouldn’t be so presumptuous as to describe Rio here, and risk making the poor fellow blush when his RSS feed finds this post. I will instead refer you to his newly established blog, which is a feast of fine content.
His writings and photographs of the Ubud Royal Cremation ’08 are the best I have found yet anywhere. So go find out about Rio and his many enterprises and interests.
