Trunyon Bali Aga

21 Dec

“I first heard about Trunyan in the 1970s when I was a Time correspondent in Saigon. According to local lore, the village was “discovered” by war photographer Sean Flynn, whose swashbuckling reputation equaled that of his Hollywood father, Errol. Flynn heard rumors of a mysterious people, unwelcoming of outsiders, residing in the shadow of an active volcano on the far side of Lake Batur, a water filled caldera created by a volcanic eruption 25,000 years ago. What he found after crossing the lake was a settlement of primitive Bali Aga who called themselves ‘the original Balinese’.”

    Unfortunately unless one of the former Khyner Rouge soldiers confesses and pinpoints the actual location of Sean Flynn’s grave, his remains are irretrievably lost somewhere in the Cambodian jungle, probably for eternity.
