We spent about a day and a half in Ubud after diving. In the morning we drove out of Ubud (which is fairly flat) toward Mt. Batur and saw amazing terraced rice paddies on the way.

We visited Pura Tirta Empul, or the Holy Spring Water Temple, and watched families bathe in the waters that are said to be holy and healing.

We donned sarongs and sashes for a tour of the inside of the temple.

And saw the avatars of the Hindu gods.

We watched a local football game, where the goal was marked with two pairs of flip flops and the keeper got yelled at for sitting down and playing in the grass.

We took a morning walk through the rice paddies around Ubud.

And came back through town just in time to see the morning offerings walking to the temple.

It was a short trip, but a nice one. The food in Ubud was wonderful and we really enjoyed the town and the atmosphere. All of the pictures are here.
