Day 01/02: Embarking on a solo trip to Bali to become a Yoga teacher certified - Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!
Bali Day 01: Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!!! 🤗😁🍂🍁💞 Arrived late afternoon during rush hour. So many cars and scouters! Main means of transportation in Denpasar are scouters and they were everywhere! After settling at the hostel, I took a deep breath and decided to go for an evening walk. I visited a small local night market with so many interesting exotic fruits, but decided not to bring a camera because as I was b y myself I didn't want to have it stolen, so I sadly I don't have pictures of the amazing night market and its colorful and its vibrant colors and life. Many smells, fruits, interesting food and people. English was rarely spoken and I felt that I seem to be the only foreigner wandering those night streets. I was blessed to have been given a guava and a snakeskin fruit to try. First time trying a snakeskin fruit I was a bit reluctant as I had no idea even what to do with it. But I ate with a huge smile as I was really hungry! The streets can be slightly chaotic with the traffic and hordes of scooters parked on one side of the road. Its 5am local time on Oct 9 and getting ready to travel to my next destination: Kura Kura in the town of Canggu
Bali Day 02: One day before Yoga teacher training begins, and on the 45 min drive to Munggu, I see many many small and big temples (Puras) along the way. Puras are the focus of the spiritual activity of many Balinese Hindu community on the island. I learned that most villages have at least three large temples, and every home has a merajan (shrine) or sanggah (house temple). These temples protect the island and its people. Today I also walked on the beach with three lovely ladies that together with twelve more, will become like family for the next 21 days. 💗
