Going Out With A Banana

Did I say banana? I meant bang and to do that we had two of our favorite banana pancakes for lunch. The picture you see is the “Leaving Ubud” sign, they just simplify it here but we aren’t sure if it is quite the same message….

The morning was spent walking to pick up some of our favorite roadside snack (half of which were meant for our shuttle today but to our dismay they were infiltrated by ants in the night – how rude!). We made another stop by Gaya to sample more flavors, this time having Bintang Beer and espresso flavors (beer flavored gelato is quite refreshing – the espresso is to die for).

We enjoyed the sunset at a beautiful cafe overlooking the rice paddies, soaking up the view with hot tea and gin rummy (the card game, not a drink). We went to a kechak, trance and fire dance that was really entertaining and quite different from the other dance we went to. The first dance involved three concentric circles of men chanting with other dancers acting out a story. The second dance involves two girls who are in a trance and dance the legong in sync without ever opening their eyes. The final fire dance involves a man running around a coconut shell bonfire on a “horse” and then kicking and walking through the fire (ouch!). All in all it was great and we are glad we went.

We decided to go out with a bang for dinner too and went to Warung Enak, a stylish upscale place a bit south of Ubud. It turned out amazing with some of the best flavors we have had (and “upscale” still is only $11, unbelievable…). Now we are at our last breakfast, all packed up and waiting to catch our shuttle to Sanur. Luckily we got to finish with our favorite treat, crepes with bananas and palm sugar!

Ubud has been great but now it is time for some fun and sun on the beach!
