A fellow Hindu

Today we have been allowed to use the tennis court at the Bali Beach Hotel. Why? Because the ballboy is a Hindu!

At first when we asked if we could play, he said, “No can play. Last night, many, many rain!”

He told us that his name is Jana. He was very proud that he was a Hindu.

I said, “I am also a Hindu.”

Then he was so moved. So he went to the higher authorities and got us permission to play on the court, even though it was still a little bit wet.
