UBUD I

BASKET ON WOMAN'S HEAD

BASKET ON WOMAN’S HEAD

SYNOPSIS:  Walking Ubud.  A Hindu day of prayer and offerings for the god of commerce, business, success, and money.   A visit of the Monkey Forest.

By the end of the day, all the lovely, handmade offerings that had been set out on the streets in front of shops and businesses all across Ubud and presumably across Bali this morning, had been trampled on, driven over, swept aside.  I asked about a handful of people who the god is who was worshipped today.  I got no recognizable name but gathered that he is the god of commerce, business, success, money — in other words, prosperity.VIEW PHOTOS AND READ THE WHOLE STORY
