Ubud - environment  Victim bowl

 

 

At the end of Ubud there is the Monkey Forrest, famous for its monkeys families. Here we were surprised not by the curious monkeys, but by a holy ceremony. Around a large tree numerous offering baskets were put down and the people sat all praying at the ground. It was a harvest festival, one of the many celebrations here on Bali, which we were allowed to see purely accidental.

Around Ubud there are numerous handicraft villages like stonecutters, wood-carvers, silver-manufactures. They all are well known for their artistic work.

On our way to the well-known elephant cave, we could observe balinesian life again and again.

Gracefully walking woman, balanced the enormous offering baskets on their head. This fascinated us exactly the same as the colourful decorated temples.

An absolute highlight for us was a walking tour through the many luxuriant green rice terraces, where we were only escorted by many multicoloured butterflies. Infinite peace and the colour play from light and shade over the rice fields let us forget time and space.
