You can eat on the beach in Sanur, Bali
It took about a day to adjust from Langon to our new nest but after we did we saw the charm that Sanur has to offers.
Sanur is a beach town with nicer stores and restaurants than Kuta but not as upscale as the Nusa Dua resort area. The shops range from local markets that sell anything and everything to high end stores that sell beautiful silver, lace, and silks. They even have Dolce & Gabbana store. There are great resturants right on the beach. You can choose from an intimate romantic settings (two person table with a candle) or a fun funky reggae places.
One day we went to find wedding bands in Celuk. Seb already posted about that earlier. Here are some pictures of a guy shining up the silver on a ring.
After our three night stay in Sanur we took a cab to Ubud. The road to Ubud has shop after shop of beautiful wood and stone carved sculptures. What I would give to be able to buy one of these and take it home. But Seb reminds me all the time that I have packed to many things.
Our cab driver encouraged us to stop at this place they sell and make batik silks. It was amazing to watch these ladies design and then dye the fabrics. The items were beautiful! Many of them reminded me of China Seas fabric, my auntie use to work for them in downtown Chicago many years ago and I use to think that they were so beautiful.
In Ubud we are staying at Suly Hotel, which has a school connected to it that helps to serve underprivledged students. It is about 10 minutes for the town center but we have a nice big clean room and the kids are really sweet. Excus me miss.
