Saturday Snapshot 11th May - Bali continued!

 
I can't believe how much I'm missing Bali.
I have this ache of longing.
Am I now romanticising my time there?
 
To prove I'm still realistic about Bali, I have a few pics of the rice fields.
Below shows the barns where the cows are kept. The smell was earthy to say the least!
Rubbish was left on the tracks that had blown off the nearby shrine.
But I loved it all - bad smells and rubbish included!
 
This area is called Jatiluwih. It is a designated UNESCO World Heritage site.
The locals employ centuries old methods to farm their land.
It is some of the most picturesque countryside I've ever seen.
 
 

 
 
 
 

 
Below are views from our villa near Ubud.
Imagine waking up to this everyday?
It was a little bit of paradise...I still dream about it with longing...and anticipation!

  1. Oh! I do love the tiered crop beds. That would be a lovely site to wake up to. Shame about the smell and trash but that is part of nature and man.
