Getting around Bali

It is very much the "high" holidays here in Bali. Last week was Galungan and next week is Ogoh-Ogoh and Nypei. Dressed in beautiful traditional clothing most Balinese traveled to the ceremonies on their "motors". Sidesaddle seems to be the popular way when wearing a sarong and carrying a Gebogan. The Gebogan made of fruit and flowers would eventually be carried on her head into the temple.

Side saddle must be for the daring ages---you must have complete trust in the one doing the peddling---great sketch and I love to hear about what you write about.

I love your sketch and a nice warm writeup on it.. I got reminded of India, where bikes and motorbikes are common many times our dresses force us to travel pillion sitting sideways..Nostalgia!! :)
