Ubud is the arts center for Bali and my friends Jeffrey & Barbara told me there’s all kinds of classes for cooking, painting etc along with massage and good food.

Sean & I got a losman ( guest house ) for 40,000rp. We could of got it for less but didn’t want to spend any effort haggling. The room is quite nice with 2 large single beds made of bamboo. We get a flask of hot tea and a small breakfast too…just like at Boots HQ in Eugene except I don’t have to make it.

The monkeys were little buggers and tried to grab Sean’s water but the bug guy was too fast for him.

Tonight we’re going to call Nyoman a friend of J & B and hope he’ll give us the low down on Ubud.

There’s a ton of tasty stuff on display here, textiles, carving, mats etc. I can see how toursit just want to buy it all but know I can get it much cheaper, all I’ve gopt to do is ask around.

We’re leaving on Sunday at 6pm but if I had time I’d love to do some kind of arts class.
