Bali pics up!

For your viewing pleasure or quick escape from reality!
I put the more personal pics on my FB page

Enjoy! M&J

More salad rolls and raw goo balls:)

Been on a major healthy eating kick lately, trying to balance out and
get my irritated Osaka skin back to normal- and hopefully better than
ever! This health kick has me staying away from dairy ( as usual) but
also wheat- impossible for me but I'm trying... And so that pretty
much leaves a diet of greens, fruit, and fish! Which I am excited
about but it's also daughnting buying fruit here:( $2 alpples, $6
peaches-forget it! But we've been making due and today I made more
tofu salad wraps and tried these raw ball things, these will be
nothing like the ones we had in Bali, but I had to try.. They are
cooling in the fridge now.. Will report back.


That was delicious!

Da beach

At the rather popular tourist site- Tanah Lot were you pay a small
donation to sample or cleanse with the holy water- spring water that
flows out the big rock on the right. The after sunset was the best

Rice patties abound

Although they are much less now with all the foriegn investment eating
up the land.. It was great to see the rice patties at all different
stages of life, this one was accross the road but luckily the ones out
back from our porch were lush and tall!

Religion is everywhere

In Bali the majority is Hindu. Which makes for beauty all around. The
intricate carvings and offerings are everywhere and I feel so lucky to
have attended a large ceremony and a wedding,wow the Balinese really
know how to make a foreigner welcome!
