Hi everybody,dear readers and loyal subbies,
The day started early at aprox 6.30 as I had to be ready by 8.00 hrs for the pick-up for my excursion to Ubud.
We started out at the Monkey Forest Sanctuary full of Macaque monkeys. This was a fun excursion and the Forest was and is beautiful. To be honest the monkeys were quite cheeky once they knew you had food on you. Especially the leader.
Aferwards we left for Ubud market and the Kings Summer Palace. At the moment they are restoring the palace but one thing I know for sure the palace will look beautiful once done. Really the architecture in Bali is beautiful. Even the airport love it.
After exploring Ubud for about 40 minutes it was back to the little bus and of to the Tirta Empul Temple.
This is a very peaceful place and we saw people cleansing themselves. Also we were witness of a very rare dancing ceremony.
Once we visited the temple it was time for lunch. I had Gado Gado. Very tasty! This was the first time I had it without rice but none the less tasty.
For our last stop we visited local woodcarvers. I am so impressed that these people can make such beautiful sculptures out of wood.
Afterwards we were dropped of at our hotels and I enjoyed a well deserved shower session.
I hope you all enjoyed this post and as always feel free to leave a comment.
Until next post friends!
