Hello, Bali (Part 2 - Sunday, Part 1)

(...apparently Sunday took a long time to get there...)

Sunday morning dawned at my usual too-early-for-normal-people time, so I spent some more time reading on the deck and drinking coffee while awaiting my second massage. I had arranged for a driver for the day to take me around, so post-massage I showered, packed, and left my things at the desk before checking out. And then off to explore!

The first stop was at a traditional family compound.

The kitchen

I cannot imagine cooking in this kitchen. It was already sweltering outside, so add this oven...

Rice out to dry

The family temple

Cockfighting is not apparently not illegal in Indonesia...
After exploring the compound, my driver next took me to one of the local temples. Beautiful.

Looking into the temple

Sporting a sarong

Bird house

A bit later, there was some playing of the instruments - delightful!

Next stop was short hike to a lovely waterfall.

The stairs...the knee did not like the stairs. Ah well - worth it!

So many pictures for one day! Still more to come in Part 3.
