During a nine-day visit to Bali, former Indonesian President Megawati Seokarnoputri included a visit to the popular Elephant Safari Park in Taro, north of Ubud.Click Images to Enlarge
The former President, who made a brief visit to the Park just two months ago, obviously enjoyed the initial visit sufficiently to prompt her latest return visit in the company of her husband, legislator Taufiq Kiemas; her 3 children; and 7 grandchildren.
Ibu Mega spent more 2 hours at the park while her children and grandchildren rode the elephants and watched the pachyderms go through their paces in a circus-like performance. Before adjourning to the Elephant Safari Park's restaurant and gift shop, the VIP group received a special bonus of a live painting exhibition by the Park's resident elephant artiste whose work is on sale at a leading art gallery in New York City.
Scheduled to leave Bali on July 17, 2007, Megawati used her Bali visit to also attend a political briefing of her party's cadres in preparation for the coming Governor's race on the island. Ibu Megawati and her family stayed in Bali at the former Chief Executive's private residence in the village of Cucukan near Blahbatu in Gianyar regency.
