BALI



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



Rice Shrine
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




Street "Art"
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).



Street Craft
The level of craftsmanship in Bali is astounding.
Rockwork like this was commonplace throughout the city
as well as exquisite carving like this:



Caduceus


Small Pleasures and Intrigues



Exotic Fruit



Suggestive Art



Foreign Language
Swastika with mango.

 

Sublime Environs



Strange Ways
Those are eggs he's transporting.



Bali "Gas Station"
Gas in glass.




Hammocks
Believe me, this IS the life.

A Few Annoyances



The Bankroll
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.



Holy Sidewalks



Monkey Mischief
Cute until they muddy your bed
pee in the pool and take your
swimsuit up the tree.
