salt farmers Brigit and Mick organised a tour to the north east part of the main island. The first place we stopped was a salt farm. As was the case with almost everyone I encountered, the locals here were thrilled to be photographed, and delighted to see their images on the camera screen. On the way to our next stop, a temple, we encountered some monkeys next to the road. One attacked one of the women travelling with us, but regretfully I was tardy in getting the shot.

sukawati market Mick drove us to Ubud on Saturday and on the way we stopped at Sukawati Market. Mainly acting as a produce market for the locals, with a smattering of textiles, the place was energetic and seemed a long way from the tourist hubs. All but the older women were happy for me to take some shots of them. I was escorted through the place by a trader who gratefully accepted the 50,000 rupiah fee she told me I owed her at the end of out trek through the stalls.

ubud monkey forest Sharon, Susi, Ronnie, Oma, Rachel Loz, Brooks and I went to Ubud. The sacred monkey forest was our first destination in this town. I stayed behind while they went shopping and had lunch. I couldn't find them, so went back to the monkeys and sat with them instead.
