The Lost Images
Opps...It seems i found a stash of images from Ubud, Bali that I never posted. So before I update you on our progress through Thailand I will give you a brief rundown on Ubud. The cultural center of Bali, Ubud is known for its painters, craftsmen, and silversmiths. It is also home to a beautiful landscape of impossibly lush green rice terraces, winding mountain fed streams, and crashing waterfalls. The town is relatively small, but has grown quite a bit since the filming of "Eat, Pray, Love". I visited the area a couple weeks ago and thought it would be a great place to spend our final days in Bali here. The town is a blend of backpacker havens and boutique hotels, roadside warungs and 5-star bistros. I spent a lot of time wandering the market area, which is one of the best in Bali. We got a taste of our first good live music in several months at the Laughing Buddha, which also had excellent tapas. We also saw a traditional Balinese ceremony performance, something I usually wouldn't bother with but am glad I did. We revisited the Monkey Forest, and MJ did pretty good-only one incident involving a marauding group of Long Tailed Monkeys. Since we only had 5 days to spend there, we have decided to return to the area in January for a while so MJ can properly enjoy all there is to see- her eyes are almost totally healed!
