Kissing in Public

You shouldn't kiss in public here really. It's not good manners but it's not against the law like in India.
I read a year ago or so that a judge in India dismissed a case against a married couple who kissed in public, indicating a change there. Remember the kiss near the end of Slumdog Millionaire? I took that as a tiny statement relating to the ban on kissing in movies - though there seems to be some now. Read this from 2009. Back to Bali. hen Katrinka's son climed Mt. Agung here, an all night affair, his guide at the top said he had a question about Westerners which I supposed would include Aussies. "Why do they kiss in public?" He was baffled.
