Agus and I were sitting on his front porch drinking Balinese coffee around midday. His three year old daughter had just wondered off and I had something on my mind.

Can I ask you something about Bali? 

Sure, he replied.

Is there a corruption problem here? 

Yes of course. But something very good has happened. They have taken many of the corrupt people and put them in jail. They don’t know how long they stay. And they must wear orange. Everyone who is in jail because they are corrupt must wear this orange shirt. And all the other prisoners know them and — he makes a punching motion and smiles – it is very good!
