April 28-May 2: Ubud

After a few days in the busy beach area of Kuta/Legian in the southern part of Bali, we headed into the interior of the island, to the “artsy” town of Ubud. It reminded me of a Balinese “Napa” – lots of nice restaurants, beautiful, serene scenery, and art galleries. Ubud has always been known as a center for the arts, but even more  so after famous European artists hung out here in the 1930s. Ubud was one of my favorite places, but not really a place for kids. There wasn’t a lot to “DO” – it was more a place you just hung out and took in the spirit of the place. There was every shade of green imaginable – from the terraced rice paddies to the jungle out the back door. Before arriving, we had a few places in mind to stay, but the taxi driver thatdrove us toUbud “had a friend” (as usual) who had a guesthouse which ended up being perfect. It was down a quiet lane through the rice paddies, and near a river, which you could hear gurgling below. We had a patio with a beautiful view of the jungle beyond.

One of the nice restaurants (above). This rice paddy was being readied for planting. Must have been a beautiful spot when the fields were green.

Tasha LOVED the silver-smithing classes she took – one in Thailand and one here in Ubud. Here are the results of her classes.

Much to the kids’ amusement, I couldn’t get enough of these rice terraces

    I am curious if anyone has experience or opinions on iPad wall mount for home control?
    Has anyone used the following product from emonita.com?

  8. I feel like this is a subject many people overlook but In the big picture this is probably one of the features in a car you use the most.
    I’m just wondering which you guys think has the best and smoothest system, my favorite so far is bmw car navigation system

  9. What is everyone using to iPad wall mount?
    We were using the iRoom iDock but that is now gone from what we are told.
    I have yet to find anything with a similar feature set to it, the locking button combination or anything that locks in place with out a key needed.
