These photos hold so much energy for me, still.
Doesn’t that grotto look like a place where really magical things could transpire?
We stumbled upon this grotto buried deep in the Ubud rainforest, sunken deep into the ground, at a place called the ‘monkey forest,’ where thousands of monkeys roamed around, occasionally attacking overeager tourists who bought bundles of bananas from hawkers outside. Personally I was terrified of the monkeys, but I loved watching them from a safe distance. I really felt like I was wandering a lost world populated by chattering animals and silent statuary, rust stained ponds and emerald moss pathways.
[Monkey on a monkey!!!!! Delicious.]
Isn’t she so beautiful and hypnotic? I am the worst dancer in the world but I loved watching her hyper graceful movements.
