Reportage: Tour day two of Bali

Amed

We got up and had breakfast with the ducks quacking at us and then walked across the street for an hour of snorkeling before we hit the road again. I am always amazed by the abundance of colorful fish as soon as I put my mask in the water.

Pisang rebus—boiled bananas

Pak Astika bought a bunch of these small brownish bananas from a woman on the side of the road. I was a little reluctant to try one not being a huge fan of bananas, but they are so delicious or “sangat enak” as we say here in Bali. Not so sweet, a bit lighter with a slight citrus flavor, I think...

Selling a little of everything on the side of the road.

These are so wonderful. I really like the woman selling by the side of the road. Her complexion and garment are so real.

just so fascinating for me to enjoy your work----the hot peppers ( and I can not handle them for sure) are a favorite sketch with me--with all those stems etc....
