Happily, two terrific fellow yogis from the ashram, Michelle and Andrea, were also here and we had a fantastic time shopping, going to restaurants and even taking a cooking class!
The photos are just from around and about Ubud. Its getting larger everyday with new villas and bungalows being built for the growing tourism trade but its still surrounded by rice paddies that are easily accessed. I can see them just out my hotel window! I walked out through the fields earlier today to have a mint lemonade and jaffel at the Sari Organic restaurant which is smack dab in the midst of rice paddies.
Tomorrow its time to pack (please God let my suitcase fit everything) and catch a flight to Sydney.
