In keeping with my Resolution, I’m taking a well earned 10 day break in Bali (actually, SWMBO told me I had to be here to attend a wedding from her side of the family). Sometimes, you just have to take one for the team.

The ‘family’ booked out the villa located in Seminyak. Tough gig.

It was quite an elaborate wedding....many seperate functions to attend pre and post the actual ceremony. You could have bought several BMW’s with what they would’ve spent on the wedding.

Once the formalities were over, it was time to relax poolside or explore the island.
:P

Convinced Jacki we should go on a group bike tour to explore the island (what else)....an easy 20km mostly downhill thru local villages and paddy fields.

Went past an area where they were preparing for a mass cremation (not the actual burning but the prep side of the business). It was interesting to see and hear about the process. All Balinese are cremated but there is a 4 year backlog. They are initially buried, exhumed when it is their turn, bones washed and cleaned and then placed inside ‘animals’ depending on their status. Here are cows and you can decide on the expression (before you die).

Getting a face massage by a Golden Orb Web Spinner (female, getting a massage from a male would be inappropriate (for me)).
:P

Great Pics, Steve. If that volcano goes BOOM! the expression on the faces of those cows will turn to a grimace. :oops:
