Stopping for a beer in Bali
Traveling inland from the Denpasar port in Bali
, our tour guide deposited us at this roadside restaurant in Tampaksiring for bowls of rice and ice cold Heineken. The waitstaff disappeared (to be summoned with bamboo clickers) while we cooled off under the veranda and felt alternately guilty and intrigued by the slow process of harvesting rice. While the scarecrow guarded the edge of the field, the workers occasionally looked up to smile at us.
