This page is full of photos from over the years, I have tried to put them in some kind of order but they aren't all from the same trip so it's a bit of a jumble:)
At the top of this page under our family photo, in the bar, are the links to other pages, click on each title to view the page for that trip.
To the right are more Bali stories/pages these are of later holidays and will be in better order.
Links below are to stories I've written or JBR's(just back report) as they are known on travel forums again I'm not sure that they are in order.

You can't convince me this is an average kitten, I'm sure it's some wild jungle cat, just as we took the photo it's little arms went out and it attacked!

My beautiful mermaid from... the Golden Buffalo? I think thats the name, or is it the Golden Bull?
From a dark little corner in a strange little shop that I couldn't find again in Ubud markets, the shop lady looked at me like I was crazy when I wanted to buy this bird. I had to polish it up a LOT.
Arond my piano is my mermaid, seahorse, frogs and a huge traditional Balinese painting that I framed with floor boards

On the kitchen window sill
A beaded basket from Ubud
In Ubud markets I found a metal statue, the dark green type, that I wanted it was two frogs dancing together holding hands, about 40 cms high, the guy wanted RP 1,400,000!! ha ha I said how about RP200,000, this went on back and forth as it does. He wouldn't go any lower than RP 600,000, I would come back here twice more, I think he had the only dancing frogs in Ubud (make that Bali) and he knew it!
Tried to find a painting I liked in Ubud but had no luck, went back to frog man and held up the dancing frogs with a big smile on my face knowing he would remember me, he smiled too, but he would not come down in price.
Back to the dancing frog man, bigger smile but still no! he would not come down any lower than 400,000, I said to him "what are they made of gold?", "no brass" he replied. Just couldn't justify paying that much, and I had already bought one of those fat frogs carrying a dish over his head for RP250,000 that I loved, so I never did get my dancing frogs.
The next Christmas I had a pile of presents from my hubby and amongst them was the dancing frogs!!! he had seen them in a Bali shop here in Sydney and bought them for me... what a honey XXXX
He paid a lot more than 400,000rp let me tell you! moral of the story if you really really love something buy it, you may never see it again :)
