something old, something different. so philippines in the 70s, this building. and yet with its own bali twist.
this is where we had breakfast every day. it was part of the package, and we loved it. we stayed in a small hotel, nothing flashy but very homey and the people were warm and friendly and helpful. i'd go back there again:)
i don't know how, but Kat and Clau knew of this shopping center, and we took a cab there and stopped for lunch. and this is the pottery that was on the table. let me not repeat the "L" word. LOVE. there, did it anyway...LOVE THIS POTTERY
can't remember when i last went up an airplane by walking through a runway. but then, how often do i go on airplanes? truly though, i think i was a kid the last time i did something like this runway to plane thing....
you see stuff like this in front of every stall in Bali. i asked the receptionist why, and she said it's like a morning offering to the gods. it should have flowers, grass, incense, and some food. it's like being thankful for the day's prosperity.
this is the market we went to. kat and clau thought it would be cheaper, but the cheapest was really the market fronting our hotel. anyway, it was nice to try something different. one thing i loved about bali is a lot of foreigners go there so it's not hard to find large sized clothes that fit me in the markets:)
these offerings were in front of the pool of the hotel we stayed in.
