...the rest of my parents' trip here was a lot of fun. We went to conference for a few days so didn't get many pictures of the last few days in Bali (though one of the buildings at the resort burnt down while we were there! Wish I had a picture of that! No one was injured and it wasn't guestrooms that burnt.)
When we got home my parents got to hang out with our neighbors and co-workers some. We went to "U-turn Satay" and "Cheeslicious" the same night. My mom made the comment that those two eating establishments display and help define the wonderful range of life here. Easily accessible yummy cheap traditional local food and easily accessible non-native western 'delicacy' food. I think in one night we might have established a tradition! Satay and cheesecake!
Enjoy the rest of the pics!
|There were stone statues all over the temple grounds.|
|At one point a guy rang a bell somewhere to call all the monkeys to come eat. This is them running back down the stairs (and past my mom, Anthony, and the boys) to where ever.|
|You have to keep all valuables secured so the monkeys won't take them.|
This video is hilarious. My dad laughing adds most of the humor:)
|Back at the hotel a Balinese dancer (and her niece) were dancing.|
|Bubba Gump's for Father's Day!|
|And you think YOU spent a lot on your dad for Father's Day?!|
|putting flowers in the sand at the hotel...|
|Love this kid!|
|....the drive home from the airport. It took 3.5 hours, but thankfully it was supposed to take that long and it wasn't spent pushing a car through immigration! Made for a much more chilled environment ;)|
|Satay with our neighbors. They've lived in this city longer and know more fun local places.|
|...some of the best beef satay ever!|
|it's hard to read from all the grease dripping down, but the sign says "U-turn" satay. I'll give you one try to guess how you get there.|
|...it's right off a U-turn on a highway. Quite the harrowing experience getting to it!|
We are so glad my parents got to come and stay for so long. Two grandparents having jobs that allow them to have time off like that (a Teacher and a Family owned Farm) isn't the norm and we're glad they want to come spend it with us!
