I want the world to feel familiar; not exotic. When the world is familiar then there is no fear. I am calm; and enjoy immersing me at the local food stall and/or bar.
This christmas is so different in every way...no Polar Express, no 16ft tree (or was it 12 ft?). But what counts is family. Mommee and daddy made it out to be with me. I was on the verge of sulking but they made me choose not to.
Good day. Dad had Balinese coffee- sort of sludgey. Mom was brave and had mei goreng (fried noodles!). Drove through the country side, narrow roads and lots of scooters. Highlight was the Ubud community market (bought an animal for a friend's zoo collection!).
No, wait, the highlight was the Ubud Hanging Gardens!! That's going to be the next holiday destination, I promised me that.
Sitting by the pool. Listening to the surf above the sound of the rain...more photos from the trip.
