Our adventure around Northwest Bali is over and we’re “Back in the Bud”…Ubud. I’m happy to be back on my Scoppy visiting my favorite cafes and people. I’ll be posting about our stay at the fantastic Matahari Beach Resort & Spa for my birthday soon… so stay tuned..
Until then, next week is Nyepi, the Balinese day of silence. Ogoh Ogoh are being built all over town to be carried around during the festivals the day before. Then, we go into a full day of silence in this part of the world. Burning these monsters is apparently a way of exorcising evil spirits.
