I Love Monkeys!

There’s nothing like a good dose of monkey shenanigans when the weather has been unrelentingly cloudy and foggy, like it has been here in Shanghai. So it’s time to revisit Bali and the day we visited the Monkey Forrest. Looking back over the pictures of that day, I’m once again struck by how colorful Bali is. The pictures start with the dinner we had the night before and end back at our resort the following evening.

The pictures are now in a gallery–Click on the first picture to make them appear larger in the middle of your screen, and then use the arrows on the left and right side to scroll through the pictures.

Till next time….elephants.


About DECRYPTKNIT: knitter on the loose in Shanghai

Hi, I'm Marisa Newhouse, a former pharmacist (for a brief time during the Reagan administration) who's real calling was probably anything that has to do with cooking, plants, literature and especially knitting; hence my last and favorite job, working at Woolyminded, a wonderful yarn store. But now, I have moved half a world away to Shanghai where my husband will be working. Lots of people are interested in what we will be doing here and I have always kept journals of our travels, so I thought I'd do it the modern way and keep a blog.

    I love the pictures of Bali, what an amazing place! The floating flower petal arrangements were beautiful. Who would take the time to do that here? I think I will try a smaller version this summer when the flowers are out, but that may be awhile, there was a snow day last Monday.
    The 171 recital was Saturday, it just wasn’t the same without you up there tap dancing!
    Keep having fun.

    • I miss tap dancing sooo much (the recitals maybe not quite so much!)!
      Who would take the time to make those flower petal arrangements? The people of Bali! The whole place is very laid back and relaxed (see the previous Bali post about the taxi stopping in the street.) There really is a more relaxed atmosphere there. Yes, people will try to get you to hire them as a taxi driver or come in to their spa, etc, but they have quite the “take it or leave it” attitude. There’s none of the sometimes unrelenting persistence that you get here in China, although that has calmed a bit over the years. Six years ago you couldn’t walk through the airport,even,here, without being pursued by hawkers, but that is no longer the case.
