Ubud, Bali – Day 2

3 02 2013

We took a shuttle van from Kuta- Legian to Ubud yesterday. VERY different from the big beach towns: quieter, less scary traffic, and beauty everywhere! (Exercising shopping restraint is going to be quite difficult.) staying at Raka House, a guest house with small pool, our own room for $18/night with breakfast. Here’s a pic of my front sitting area. (Click photo below for larger view.) Very friendly and gracious host.

We went to an amazing performance of Balinese dance with gamelan music last night. Guess I had seen it on TV, but in person the dance form is…intense, almost hypnotizing.

Wow, it’s all beautiful. So glad to follow along on the Bali part of your trip — “wish I was there!” 🌏

Your room looks pretty special for $18.00. Sounds like you are having a fabulous time. How long are you going to be gone?

Hi Joanie, I’ll be in Bali 3 weeks, then back to Hawaii (Maui this time for a retreat), then on to Portland to visit an old friend. My house is rented until April 1st!
