Bali Ubud writers Fest Part 2

Awoke early to see more behind the scenes preparation at the temple across our hotel. Ladies dressed in beautiful Kebaya, men in their sarongs and prayer "caps", sound of gamelan droning gently on and on.

We decided to embark on another touristy thing. Why not, since it's not everyday that we're in Bali. Here we are on the Campuhan Ridge Walk. We started out pretty late, so the sun was high and scorching, and there was hardly any shaded path. Thankfully Jo had her pink umbrella, so K and she stuck together most of the way. Some beautiful scenery on the path, actually if not for the heat, it'd be a really love walk,  but because of the heat, our goal was to get to the end for some delicious lime juice at Karsa Café.

Beautiful Padi fields along the way.

Three quarters into the walk we came across some artists galleries. We really liked the works by Wayan Rana, and his works were going for very reasonable prices.

Here's egg painting by Wayan Rana, and he has lovely Balinese paintings too. We asked if he'd teach us how to paint, and surprisingly he said yes. So we made an appointment with him.

Well we made it to Karsa Café, enjoyed our drinks by the padi field and made our journey back to town through the same heat again. We then rushed the children for their first workshop, James Foley's Dragon Workshop.  Children had fun drawing their own dragons, listening to Mr. Foley read a story about dragons, watching him draw a dragon etc.

Kids ended the day with a swim at the pool with their friends, and later we walked up to Naughty Nuri's to have a taste of their delicious ribs and chops! YUmmmmmssss!!!!
