There were so many juxtapositions there
Look at the size of these goldfish
reminded me of a beloved Dr Seuss book...
A view from the massage room in Ubud
Selling his wares, complete with fresh bees
Fresh fish sitting in the heat all day
Tumeric - (I cook alot with it and it was amazing seeing it in its natural state - not dired in a bottle)
Rice and grains of all descriptions
Fresh and dried herbs and chillies
Wontons anyone? Could have bought some whilst stopped at a traffic light.
Stopped the car to photograph this old man
Happy children skipping along the road
Carrying some offerings
Dressed for the Holydays
We got to try some of the offerings too
Preparing them in the markets
I even managed to find a wink for Michelle Ward
I hate the heat and it was oppresive in Bali - except for this one ATM machine - nice and cool!
Watching the weaving of Ecots
Back breaking work, the weavers' backs hurt after many hours of weaving,
especially with the planks of wood behind their backs holding the loom in place.
Even the doors were full of inspiration
The detail is astounding
Scooters were everywhere
Traffic jam at the markets
Decorations with palm leaves at the entrance to Staceys for our last night dinner
The fine art of decorating - naturally
Our host Stacey was amazing and Wayan who both, were so hospitable
Awwwww, rose petals on the bed...
I will leave it at that for Bali.
