Bali: A Week in Paradise

I am becoming an experienced world traveler. Our most recent excursion was to Bali.

We checked in to the resort at about 12:30AM. We were exhausted, but we were still given flower chains and welcome fruit juice drinks.

Our villa was swank.

The fruit bowl held tiny bananas, green oranges, ans snake fruit.

Most morning, we has breakfast at the outside restaurant. Dinner and lunch was outside, also, but by the pool.

The resort grounds were beautifully decorated and very relaxing.

Our first dinner was the Balinese Cultural Night, complete with food and drink, music, and dancing.

At the end of the night, the dancers invited the guests up to dance with them. I got to use my mad snake arm moves from our belly dance videos. ;)
Group pictures were then taken.

The next morning, we took a tour of the Ubud Wet Market (where locals shop, 4AM-9AM), and drove out to view some rice fields.

Our guide demonstrated how to make an offering packet out of a banana leaf.

Our guide then took us on a tour of a traditional Balinese home that belongs to a friend of his.

Little pigs.

Big Pig.

The pig was enthralled by David. This photo does not show her size, she was huge.

To be continued.
