Day in Sideman, Bali


For some reason we thought taking a walk through Sideman, Bali on the most humid day ever was a good idea.  It was maybe two degrees cooler today and we got all excited.  Sideman is just a smallish village in East Bali.  Everyone was so nice but we were so over sweating all day.  Here are the highlights:

Sideman, Bali banana leaf lunch

My favorite meal so far- this fantastic lunch was made by the tour driver’s wife.  She put all the food into in a banana leaf so we could have a picnic by the river. Included is tempeh, chicken, noodles, and cucumber with a side of hot sauce of course.  Fresh and delicious lunch for sure.

And finally the pool, where we spent our afternoon splashing around in the the cool water. The pool was so such a wonderful thing to return back to. Pretty much our entire group spent hours lounging in the scenic pool area.

I can stop complaining about the heat for a bit because we are heading higher into the mountains to climb a volcano.  We start at 3am so it will be much cooler.  More from Bali soon!
