'bout Bali - 2
Continuing my post about Bali....seems I have lots of photos...so have uploaded them to photobucket and now can drag'em here for you to see....anyway, after lunch we went on with sight seeing, coz we only had two days to enjoy the sights in Bali. Late afternoon we went to Uluwatu to see the sunset and watch the famous "Kecak Dance" If you see the pic below and see on the upper left, there is a cliff with an amphitheater on it, we sat there and watched the dance until night fell and torches were lighted. The experience was breathtaking.
The second day we went up to the mountains to see Ulun Danu Temple at Bratan Lake. We had lunch on the way and saw unusual faunas on the roadside. Here they are :
They're called Luwak here [Asian Palm Civets]. Maybe you've heard of Luwak Coffee or Kopi Luwak?? It could be the most expensive coffee in the world, the price ranges from $35 to $100 per cup...yes, cup !! Average coffee maybe only costs $2 to $5 per cup....right ? What do these animals have to do with that expensive coffee ?? I'll leave you to google it yourselves....Wakakaka^^ [Insert evil grin here].
Hehehe...the bat is so cute...here it is above...
all wrapped up and snug, ready to snooze.
Below is the Ulun Danu Temple, dedicated to the Water Goddess. The lake fills the crater of the inactive volcano of Mount Catur. I thought it was really a dreamlike sight.
Ulun Danu is a Hindu Temple, but in front of Ulun Danu Temple,
there is a small Budhist Temple [above]...
they must have gotten along nicely !
At Sunset we arrived at Tanah Lot and enjoyed our last sights of beautiful and enchanting Bali. Lucky us..there was a pre-wedding foto shoot at the rocks on the beach, I sneaked a click hehe, so did the hundreds of domestic and international tourists there^^ Okay...now me shut up and let you enjoy the photos. See you later....
