Most people who come to Ubud just stay a few days before moving on, but since we’ve got two weeks to fill I think I’ve explored every nook and cranny of town with Hugo, twice.
A visit to Ubud isn’t complete without a visit to the Monkey Forest.
Although I don’t think you can actually see any in that picture, trust me, the Monkey Forest is full of them. They also bite and will steal your stuff, so visitors beware. But, if you would like to experience a monkey jumping on your head, this is the place for you!
We’ve been to the market and touched everything.
We’ve had some street treats to eat.
We’ve had some tropical fruits to drink.
We’ve stuck a few straws into a few coconuts.
We found hidden fish ponds.
We found the Pondok Pekak Library & Learning Center, where you can check out books or take language and art classes.
And they don’t mind if you just sit in the shady courtyard reading for hours at a time.
Hugo has also discovered a love of swimming pools, so we’re spending a lot of time in the water these days. In fact, the other night he jumped in, fully clothed, during a birthday party for two of the students. Luckily, it wasn’t the deep end. I guess it will be time for some serious swimming lessons when we get back to Tacoma!
