Another memory for storage, my wife’s birthday holiday to Ubud. The perfect spot for an escapist or spiritualist, we are both. Above a Kecak performance, reminds me of the film Baraka. Finding an appropriate room was difficult, she booked in advance but that room was unsuitable, access to it bad for a cripple. A bush walk with no lighting and so many steps, difficult for anyone let alone me. The manager of the resort was reasonable, very understanding. We moved to a more suitable joint, my wife knows Ubud very well.

The Balinese culture is very different from the west aware of ancestry, they believe in reincarnation. For them life is rebirth and we experience the karma of our previous lives. They tell me the Balinese culture is derived from Hinduism.
