Happy Holidays from Bali

A few quick sketches of Christmas in Bali.
A classic
There are many beautifully renovated Vespas here in Bali. We were tempted to buy one, but the clink and clank of the two stroke engine quickly changed our minds.

Now that's a tree!
There is always a Christmas tree at the entrance to the Kalimantan, a popular ex-pat open-air cafe and watering-hole. The owner, our friend Bob, an ex-pat from Colorado, got this year's living tree from his yard. It is haphazardly strung with strands of blinking multi-colored lights, hanging from the branches are little white cotton snowmen ornaments with red hats and the the whole thing is draped in colored tinsel garland. It's quite a sight.

Happy Holidays

What a jaunty tree--I love it! I have been enjoying your posts from Bali, even though I haven't been commenting much: I intend to remedy that!
Best wishes for a happy holiday to you and yours!
