Lod Tunduh

As mentioned in my previous post, my family and I just returned from a much needed holiday in Bali. It has been 8 years since we visited Bali and a lot has changed in that time with a lot of development gone ahead.

We spent an amazing 2 weeks, staying in both Ubud and Seminyak. In Ubud we stayed in a private villa in Lod Tunduh, just 10 minutes drive from Ubud town and it was great to be able to get away from the tourist areas of Kuta and Legian to experience a more traditional Bali. It was great to get a better sense of how local Balinese live and carry out their day to day lives. Needless to say their lives are very simple and very different to ours back home in Australia which always makes me wonder who has it right, us or them?

The below shot was a rushed shot taken in the alleyway just outside our villa as one of the local men was heading out for a stroll.
