    Red, LOVE the extra cooking class photos!!! I think you should bring the really tall bearded chef along to Ruckus
    Cathy - You are welcome on the extra photos. The tall bearded one has said no to the ruckus. To his defense, he travels a lot for work, and is already on the road quite a bit in July. Maybe next year....

    Okay, we'll give the chef a pass ... but he does look like someone Walter would happily hang out with in the future

    I agree on the cooking class photos! Too bad your husband won't join you.

    Default A Visit to the Monkey Temple

    Indeed I do have more photos.

    How about a visit to what I call the Monkey Temple?

    First of all, any visitor to Bali quickly learns that to visit a temple, you need to be wearing a sarong and a sash. I purchased ours before the trip and brought them along. (This first photo was taken at a very nice temple which was not the Monkey Temple.)

    The "Monkey Temple" had a sign at the entrance explaining the rules.

    The "Monkey Temple" was located on the sea between the Atlas Pearl Farm and the Matahari Resort in North Bali. After paying a small entrance fee, you climbed up to the temple.

    But, look closer.

    At other temples, people placed their offerings of foods to the gods onto open tables. But, not at the "Monkey Temple". This place was equipped with cages and monkey-proof locks. Not to cage up the monkeys, mind you. To cage up the food offerings.

    I guess acceptance of nature has its limits. (Yes, that monkey is eating a daily offering.)

    Whooa! That looks like a good workout! The monkeys remind me of the ones in Japan. They can be somewhat mean. Where there are monkeys, there are signs that tell you not to stare at them and don't feed them. Do they instruct you to do the same in Bali with the monkeys? I saw one monkey follow a woman to her car and grab her purse at the last minute. The lady held on to her purse and won after a slight struggle.
