April 17th 2016 (Ubud, Bali)

We are staying right next to the rice paddies, so front row seats to learn how the new seedlings are planted out.

  

  

New found rice paddy walks

  

    

    

  

  

  

  

  

  

The fresh coconuts are huge here!

The fresh market – you have to be up early for this though

  

  

More sights from in and around town

  

  

We’re getting good at steps!

You guessed it! More walking!

  

  

  

  

  

This is the home of ‘Eat Pray Love’ after all

Ha haaaa! Now we have taken to the road on two wheels!

  

  

We have a curious little pond in the kitchen

   

  

Then the rains came – time for some rock painting

   

  

With a scooter we can travel further afield. A trip out to Big Tree Farm and a raw cacao tour

  

From the flowers come the fruit

  

And then the beans

  

  

Then the roasting, grinding, and making into a paste – those kids couldn’t get any closer to the chocolate!!!

  

  

They burn the rice paddy stubble here too!

The wonder continues……
