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 moreĀ  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
