The pictures are great, but I fear that without any context, they lose much of their magic.

Imagine HONY without context?

Yes thanks, even just a line under each photo, takes 20 seconds to write a line, adds a lot.

Agadir looks great. Inspired by you, that you go to all these places off the tourist path. Is your job to travel?

Bali, Indonesia
September 2014


Sunset near Tanah Lot


Sunset at North Kuta


Rock carvings lining a river (for over a kilometer) - Gianyer, Ubud


Pool at an ancient Temple at the Elephant Caves in Ubud


Elephant Caves (Goa Gajah) Built in the 9th century in Ubud


A huge bat eating fruit. I held it, its wingspan is larger than mine.


Felt weird petting it


Mincha at the foot of a dormant volcano


How It's Made: Besamim.  Seriously, we stumbled upon this little setting deep in the mountains completely off the beaten path. They could not speak a word of english, yet we communicated and had a great time. They are picking cloves out of the branches. Entire families were doing this, even 2 year olds.


It seems we were the first white people these children had ever seen.


We ended up staying for a while and helping out.


Mineral Pools near Danau Buyan


Interesting game these kids were playing by flicking marbels into each other (Who remembers kugalech?)


Preparing for a funeral. Nearly the entire village was there helping out for 6 days while the body lay nearby. Interesting sight.


Balinese kitchen - Near Lovina


Water Temple near Candidasa


Typical rural road near Karangasem (IIRC)


Selling the daily catch near the water temple


So many monkeys loose in this area


I think this was somewhere near Amed


Children returning from temple services


The temple band


Women bringing offerings to the alter


Sunset at the hanging temple in south kuta uluwatu


Exploring the USS Liberty wreck somewhere near Amed

Carnivorous fruit?
The giant golden-crowned flying fox (Acerodon jubatus), also known as the golden-capped fruit bat, is a rare megabat and one of the largest bats in the world. The species is endangered and is currently facing the possibility of extinction because of poaching and forest destruction.
