And here we are again, Helen and Kristin. We will again be telling you about how our last week looked like over here in Bali.
We planned a little day trip to Uluwatu, which is in the South of Bali. Here you can visit the famous Uluwatu temple. We arrived there and were dressed with purple sarungs, so we could enter the holy temple. Without being there for a second an old lady was excited to guide us through the temple and its monkey-guardians. She was very polite and attentively, however she wanted 100.000 Rupiah, which was probably not necessary. You are perfectly fine with visiting the temple by yourself, if you are aware of the cheeky monkeys all around. Also in this temple we were surprised how immature people acted around them. So let us tell you this, never grab your stolen sunglasses out of the monkeys hands,they don’t find it as funny as it seems to you. 😀
Well, the temple is absolutely stunning and breathtaking, built just to the corner of cliffs, which fall down many meters until the open water hits the waves against them. We were mindblown by the view and the love and details put into this temple. We were told by the old lady that the temple is only for Hindus and they only enter the temple every six month for a large ceremony. We were impressed of how much effort and lifeblood they put into their religion and left the temple with new impressions and facts about the people and culture we live at the moment.
To sum up the day, we decided to tell the driver to drop us out at Dreamland beach. Walking down the few steps we were amazed by the blue water and the strong waves. However, the view in the other direction was a disgrace, everything was full of rubbish and fully polluted. With a little disappointment, but beautiful pictures at the same time, we left Dreamlandbeach to have lunch and end the day relaxing by the Double Six Beach in Seminyak.
This was it for today! We will have some little tipps and information for the shoppers and foodlovers between us in tomorrows post!:D
Keep up to tomorrows post! Good night, Kristin& Helen
