Taken around where we stayed, a quiet boutique hotel surrounded by some locals and their rice fields, complete with the crowing rooster at 5am.
And finally… probably the only shot I got of Ubud Central:
I’ve heard a lot about Ubud before coming, and friends who visited before largely told me that it’s spiritual place, probably something I’d like and find aligned to my tastes. My personal experience of Ubud is that while it does have its charm, my tourist radar could not stop going off during the trip and I just got the feeling that we were simply doing what every other tourist would do. In that sense the experience becomes lightly less authentic and unique to us.
Maybe that is the price to pay for Earth becoming a global village.
So that’s a wrap for Bali 2017:)
