Hi, some help please. I am aware when visiting Bali to be mindful and respect the daily offerings the Balinese people make each day. (I always do) However recently I was told by someone who had been reading up on Bali that it was not acceptable to touch their children on the head. Also that it was not appropriate to show the soles of your feet.(is that why they squat and not sit cross legged?) I did not know that. Is it true?
I would never intentionaly offend the Balinese, so if anyone can advise on anything that may not be common knowledge, I would very much appreciate the info. I think it is important to share the info so we can all be mindful when we are visiting our beloved Bali and its wonderful people. Any advise is greatly appreciated.
