Day trip to Ubud

For our first day off, a bunch of the girls did a day trip to Ubud, the spiritual and cultural center of Bali. It's only a little over an hour away, so with our trusty driver Putu, we headed off for a fun day of eating and shopping in the market.

With some of my new friends at lunch: Tania and Karine

lunch of spiced fish wrapped in banana leaves, beans, and yellow rice with coconut chutney...Mmmmmm

sooooo tempted to add this cute little teapot to my collection

lots of natural oils for sale

photo opp. with Karine, Marianne, and Sally

FYI Balinese wine is not the greatest

The next day is just a rest day to catch up on some studying and get to the beach to mentally prepare for another intense week.
