Schapelle Corby, Time Magazine and Tourists

The graphic hazards facing Bali's tourists, as described by Andrew Marshall in the latest edition of Time Magazine aren't the only dangers facing travellers. There's also a court system that's seen an innocent traveller jailed for 20 years, after a trial that would be comedic, if it weren't so tragic. And then of course, I hear many other contributors to Bali's tourist income have terrifying tales of how they were shaken down for hundreds of thousands, before they got their "Get out of jail free card."
