Today we visited one of the six main temples of Bali, the Batu Karu temple, located in the jungle, at the foot of the mountain (2,275m).
In fact the online calendar showed that there should be a cerimony to pay their respects to the deity of the temple, but when we arrived, except for a couple of tourists and us, there was no one and the weather was not that great.
Okay, never mind!
Paolo tooks some pictures and Lella and I, we enjoyed the green of the jungle and the silence of this place. On the way back we stopped in the Catholic church of St Michel in the diocese of Tabanan. The sacristan, Made Suartana, he opened the door. Seeyng the station of the cross with Christ and Mary Magdalene dressed in sarong, it was a unique experience! After our first thè botol (bottled iced tea, delicious!), our little trip ended with a a plate of mie goreng (fried noodles) overlooking the beautiful rice fields of Jatiluwi. A must for all those who decide to visit Bali!
At Batu Karu, there was not the cerimony, instead in front of our house someone was celebrating a funeral! The celebration will last several hours between drumming and gamelan. The night is long, the party also. Good night! Hopefully …
