Bali, Indonesia: Day 6

Little R with another admirer: Balinese peasant this time
Rice paddies

Temple offerings
In the morning, we went to another museum, the Museum Neka. This one included paintings from foreigners who moved to Bali and had a great influence on the development of art here. Again, it was in a really beautiful setting (modeled after traditional Balinese architecture, meaning many separate pavilions in a landscaped garden).

In the afternoon, little R, B and I went for a walk through the countryside around Ubud, which is still mostly rice paddies and small villages (although these now all sell things for the tourist trade like wooden statuettes). It was very beautiful and relaxing. My father in law went shopping for some souvenirs (he bought a painting): a win-win as I don't really like shopping for stuff, especially with a baby in tow.

We met my father in law for dinner and went back to Bridges again, which he loved even more now that he wasn't sulking. We had a very lavish multiple course meal, with many alcoholic drinks ordered, and it cost about $100 for three people: certainly a bargain as the restaurant is very fancy (the kind where they put your napkin in your lap for you). Little R behaved like a dream baby: she has really started to enjoy eating now, and loves almost everything she's given (she doesn't like spicy food and will cry if she eats it: I think it burns her tongue).
