... to see the elephant cave temple, which I've seen before but didn't mind, when we were there we followed a path through the forest for about 20 mins and came to a river with a rickety bamboo bridge and small waterfall with a small temple built into the rocks next to the river. It was beautiful around there. After that we went for lunch and then on to find a temple in the sea that we had read about. One guy had gps so we all followed in ...
... tiles covering ditches along the street. Most were in poor shape. At any given moment I felt one would give out and send me plummeting towards another Indian Jones-type adventure where I would discover ancient ruins of a village that mysteriously disappeared centuries ago.
Wait – no. My imagination got away from me again. I was not in Hollywood nor the setting of Stargate-SG1. If a tile were to break, the only place I would land would be the hospital ...
... something as low as R30000 ($3).

I met up with Marie again, my friend from the first day in Ubud, and her and Alex and I hiked up the street to Alchemy, a raw food restaurant.

We stayed one night in this resort, located on Hanoman road, right in the middle of action. Shopping literally on your doorstep, 10/10 for location. We got a cottage for a hundred dollars, but we did feel that it was not worth the money we paid - though it had all the amenities, it didn't have a good decor (dark and dingy comes to the mind) and the biggest minus was that the door had no lock! That was very worrying. The resort itself has Pretty grounds, helpful staff, the room comes with a complimentary filing breakfast - in short, we don't regret staying here, as we did book the room at the last minute.
