You can even see the finger marks from the new mud being moved.

Today I went to the Ubud market to buy a new blouse and belt/scarf for Temple. I actually did it too, and of course I got a few more things.
After the market, I went to a restaurant called the Dirty Duck. I’d been there before for dinner at night, and remember thinking that I had to go again during the day to see the fantastic fountains in the light. I’ve put some pics of them here, as well as some pictures of the rice fields that lay just behind the restaurant.
I got the new Temple clothes because I am going to an important cremation ceremony in Ginyar tomorrow. A high-priest died about 2 months ago, and the town has been preparing his cremation/burial ever since. It’s a big deal; people from all over the island are making a pilgrimage there to see him off. I asked my new friend Faith if she wanted to join me, and she is!
After the cremation we’re going to head up to Pura Besakih, (http://travel.yahoo.com/p-travelguide-2762244-pura_besakih_bali-i?action=describe) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mother_Temple_of_Besakih) the biggest and most important of the temples on the island. I’ve heard no trip to Bali is complete without it, and since we’ll already
be in our best Temple clothes – why not?
