Rice Terraces Near Ubud Bali
While staying at the Villa Semana outside of Ubud, Bali, I was treated to this zen-like view of the rice terraces. I also took a Bali Bird Walk through the rice fields. A beautiful, peaceful area to vacation. Ubud is culturally rich. Taking advantage of that, I took a batik class which as with most things is difficult to master.
