All the stress of travel washed away as we entered Swasti's magical gardens - most of the food served in the restaurant is grown onsite and you can taste the freshness. Kids loved visiting the animals and seeing the veg grow. Our little house became a haven of peace - sitting on the verandah looking over the gardens, sipping coconut was divine.

The Blue Bird taxi driver was nice, although when he asked to stop at the temple to pray for five minutes I wasn't really kosher with that, so made sure he took me directly to ...
... though it was in Balinese you could still understand what was going on.
After the dancing I was off to a waterfall, which, meh.
I'm maybe getting a little over waterfalls.
Especially when you can't swim in them or feel the spray.
It was beautiful, but we only stayed there about 5 mins looking at it.
After that... We went to a silverworks shop.
There's a whole street full of shops that do silver work, so I assume Ketut took me to one where he gets ...
... his ear wasn't mangled at all. He had stuck multiple pieces of pop corn in and around his ears. This explained the smell. As he was sweating the water was picking up the sweet popcorn fragrance before evaporating. I have no idea why he chose to do that to himself but it amused me greatly. My inquisition had distracted me to what was going on outside the car. Bustling traffic. Two technical lanes had been made into 5 and occasionally 6 as mopeds raced around cutting in and ...
