We moved up into central Ubud, to the "Jati 3 Bungalows".
We're actually staying in a family room, meant for four, because it's even bigger and airier than the other rooms. and has lovely big windows on two sides looking out over the jungle/someone's banana plantation.
It doesn't have a restaurant - but then there is a street-ful of restaurants down the way.
As with the last place, the people are very religious, and the various deities are well looked after.
... and a pretty pond.
We looked at painting s and carvings from by-gone eras, and more recent ones.
There was a certain similarity about them, regardless of when they were created.
Then there were some carvings too.
Eating and Shopping
The main street here - Monkey Forest Road - is one-way, narrow, and crowded. The side-walks almost have enough room for two people.
With the breakfasts here being not worth staying for, and a couple of other meals a day to find, we have tried a few different restaurants. Mostly they are very pleasant places - cool, open, nice seating - eager staff - and the food is all fairly cheap, and beautifully presented on the plates. But ... not all of it has been nice to eat.
But we have found ourselves returning to this one several times. Like many of the restaurants, it seems to have accommodation attached as well - "Cinta: Grill. Inn" as it says. And most of them seem to have swimming pools as well.
Of course there was all the usual cute but useless stuff.
There was the usual 'hard sell' everywhere we went. "How much do you want to pay for it?"- I find that annoying, and rarely feel like giving a genuine answer - why can't they just put a price on things?
And then after all the haggling is over and they have come as low as they seem willing, when I walk away because I have just decided I don't want it after all they get really upset because they say they will have 'bad luck' and they would rather practically give it to me rather than have me walk away.
Tomorrow we are moving on to Candidasa Beach
