Bali Mountain Ride - UBUD
A quick visual tour through the mountain to UBUD and a stop in a coffee plantation and family compound on the way down the mountain.
Balinese bus driver with offering on the dashboard.
Interesting what you see just outside the window. everything whizzs by within inches!
Beautiful volcanic landscapes near Ubud.- 3 craters
The sisters: Diana and Yolanda
Fruit stalls with pyramid formation
cocoa fruit ripening and the yellow one ready to be picked
snake fruit : tastes like a hard pear
Love the patterned mosaic work on the tiles
coco being made
selection of coffee for the tasting- some teas too
Multitude of temples along the roads
Decorations for weddings (Apparently whilst we were in Bali there were multiple marriages happening on two very lucky days too be married)
Kids - the same the world over!
temples in the family compound
Colourful women - love the basketry
Carrying bags on the head
This is my favourite photo of the whole trip. It speaks volumes. resting up against the rice and sheltering from the hot sun
Banyan tree, more than 500 years old
Cycling through the different villages with small temples the whole way down the mountain
Political elections, banners and flags even in the mountains
Tourists everywhere! (including me- not on the motorbike but on a bike)
