Ubud

Days 1/2/3/4

sunny

These four days we spent doing a number of different things. One day, we went to a woodcarving shop and learned to carve. Another day we went to see an active volcano, and the next day we visited a school called Green School. Green School is a school made entirely out of bamboo. It is environmentally friendly, so all the classrooms are outdoors, and they use old car windows as whiteboards. The students are mainly ex-pats from Australia who live in Ubud for a small amount of time, so they have students always coming and going. All of their teachers are ex-pats as well, so the classes are all taught in english. They have outdoor sports for gym class including mud-wrestling which sounds very fun! The school also has some boarders who come from Australia for a semester abroad. In one of their bamboo buildings, they have major donators names carved into one of the bamboo poles. We donated some money, and our name is now on the bamboo pole! (Sorry, we have no pictures from Green School...)

Today we drove 1 and 1/2 hours to a small town called Ubud. We walked around Ubud a little before heading back to our hotel. Our hotel is very nice, with our own private pool and garden area!

Day 4

semi-overcast 75 °F

Today we spent time at our hotel. We swam in the gigantic pool, had lunch on the beach, and relaxed. Later in the afternoon, we visited some temples. We had to dress up in the traditional wear, and we walked around the beautiful statues and carvings. In was very different from a church!

Today we went on a dolphin trip! We took boats out to a platform in the water where they had 4 pools with dolphins. We met our dolphin and then we got to watch her do tricks and jumps. We swam with her underwater, and had pictures taken too!

Denpasar

Day 2

overcast 75 °F

Today we rode horses on the beach. It was an interesting experience, but not the best riding ever. THe horses were a bit skittish in the water, and they didn't seem to like the wind. But, we had a good time altogether.
