21st & 22nd March - Bali
Arrived in Bali on 21st March after long flight from London via Hong Kong. Checked into the Mulia Resort Hotel.
Following day we did an afternoon excursion.
|Mulia was huge! But one of the best 'resort' hotel complexes we have visited. More pools than we could count! The food was v good too. We had a (largely) seafood buffet one night for 'just' £25 a head. It was superb and I overdosed on crab!|
|The rooms were gigantic too. Most impressed with the loos which did everything (Don't ask...) Elizabeth wants one at home now!|
First stop was at the Batik Factory.
|Then onto a typical village compound at Singapudu. Each family - young and old - lived together and cared for one another. Although basic, it had great charm. I wish our society was more like this.|
|Kids playing football - in bare feet - in their school break|
|As ever, the kids were immaculately dressed in their school uniforms.|
|The woodcarvers at Kemenuh.|
|Sign at the entrance to the 1000 year old Batuan Temple|
|We had to wear sarongs|
