Rice paddies, batik-ing and
the beginning of the retreat
We stayed a little outside of Ubud at the beautiful Abing Terrace, surrounded by lush vegetation and rice paddies.
In Ubud, I communed with cows, pigs, monkeys and as you can see, a dragonfly.
We did Batik at Nirvana, climbed the 2nd largest volcano on the island, (story below on that one) and were invited into the home of some strangers that happened to be Bali royalty of some kind.
