The ubiquitous offering
becomes the prettiest gutter
garbage and river flotsam.
These bundles of flowers,
rice, cookies and incense
are EVERYWHERE and
replenished daily as an act of
hospitality to benevolent spirits
and placation to those mischievous.
The Balinese are serious about their offerings.
The Monkey Forest
Mother and Child
A scene of quintessential beauty.
Humans and nature can work well together.
A Street in Ubud
A quiet moment on the street. Usually this avenue
is swarming with motorcycles. Everyone drives one.
It's not unusual to see a whole family all on one bike!
Heading to Temple
But is it Art? The storefronts are crammed
with someone's idea of abstracts. So ghastly
it's almost good. (I like the Buddha face).
The level of craftsmanship in Bali is astounding.
Rockwork like this was commonplace throughout the city
as well as exquisite carving like this:
Small Pleasures and Intrigues
Swastika with mango.
Those are eggs he's transporting.
Bali "Gas Station"
Gas in glass.
Believe me, this IS the life.
A Few Annoyances
Having to carry around a wad of bills.
50000 Rupiah is roughly $5 American.
The Awful Jaffle
Pineapple or bananas grilled between
two slices of flabby white bread.
I'm sure some are better than others.
Cute until they muddy your bed
pee in the pool and take your
swimsuit up the tree.
