Ubud, Bali – Around Town

October 27, 2011

Bali is most certainly an amazing place….but, keep in mind…quality and characteristics to vary.  So, if you are looking for something specific in mind, then do your research.  Many people tend to stay around the area call “Ubud”….if you go here you will find plenty of Australians, and other tourists….there is a certain style you will find with the accommodations that you may find very appealing 🙂

Right from the get go…you will find that it is quite the relaxed environment….have you ever seen a dog more “chilled” than this one…I mean, laying on the road…right next to a scooter…not a care in the world…middle of the day….”siesta” time…Bali style… 🙂

Now, what is interesting…is that all over the Island…it looks like you are looking at the same dog…I’m sure there are variations…but, pictures suggest they are all related 🙂  I saw so many of them, with that chilled out way of doing things, that they must be included in the photo array 🙂

One big attraction is the Monkey forest….where the monkeys roam freely and you can tell they are used to being around humans and having their way….

Look at this little fella…of course he was by the gate….no problem with Monkeys….ehhhh….but, think I’ll pass…..No Jungle Book this time…later…little fella….

Plenty of Arts shops for the those so inclined…..good works also…if you like the Balinese style….

Shopping is ‘Market Style’…so there are plenty of locally made items…quite exotic actually and if you are the bargaining type, then this is your place….watch yourself though….these folks drive a hard bargain….

Let’s not forget the ever present scooters….

Very nice boutique shopping also…bring your cash…plenty of exotic items….

There are plenty of pictures I could of included regarding the shopping.  However, the fact of the matter is….I hate shopping….so I didn’t go shopping….and I am going to use this moment to actualize the grudge I hold against shoppers!  So on behalf of all the men who have been dragged around the shopping centers, malls, boutiques, and markets around the world….”Take That”….How do you like us now… 🙂

In my Elvis Presley Voice…”Thank You….Thank You Very Much”….bowing….
