Bali 2009

  1. 2. <ul><li>After a grueling 24 hour flight we landed in Denpensar and headed straight to the hotel. You can see Tanah Lot, a 15 th century Hindu temple in the background. </li></ul>
  2. 4. <ul><li>We arrived in the midst of the annual Galungan celebration (and just missing Nyepi - the day of silence - where, we were told, talking or walking about can earn you a day of detention in the community center and public shame). The Balinese were preoccupied with preparing pigs for sacrifice, decorating bamboo poles and making sweet rice cakes. </li></ul>
  3. 6. <ul><li>We took a wonderful tour of Bali’s interior, where we visited a stone quarry, the bamboo forest rice fields and remote villages in the shadow of Mount Batukaru. </li></ul>
  4. 11. <ul><li>We stopped in a village to have coffee with our fellow tourists and new friends, Nicolas and Benoit. They are from the Dijon region of France. We had a blast practicing our high school French and discovering a mutual love of music, good food and television dramas! </li></ul>
  5. 15. <ul><li>We had a bit of trouble with the Land Rover, but the guys gave it a good shove and we continued on… </li></ul>
  6. 17. <ul><li>After a short hike we all enjoyed a lovely meal among the Bamboo trees. The day was, to borrow a French phrase, incroyable . </li></ul>
  7. 19. <ul><li>We spent a lot of time simply enjoying the beauty of Bali. </li></ul>
  8. 25. <ul><li>Dinner on Jimbaran Beach </li></ul>
