Statues at Goa Gajah

If I have ever posted about the inside part of Goa Gajah, this picture shows you one of the outside part of Goa Gajah. Those statues of dewi attached on the wall of a pool, where water flows through the statues to the pool under them. The cave's keeper let some fishes live in the pool. Balinese people believes that when a lady wash her face using the water that flows from one of the statues, that lady will look young longer.

Monkey Cemetery

This is again a picture from Monkey Forest, Bali. I think I like the forest a lot. As I ever wrote before at my previous posting that this forest become the habitat of grey monkeys. The forest is like home for the monkeys. Every monkeys in the forest has a name. When they die, there's also a cemetery there to bury them and their name is written on a monument, just like how human being is buried. That's monkey cemetery. The different with human cemetery is that when people are in a cemetery they tend to look sad and unhappy. But those monkey playing around their friend or even parent's cemetery happyly. I wonder if there's another monkey cemetery somewhere else out there.

Old Books

I have been interested on this small book store since 2 years ago. I found it in one corner of a shopping center I visit every week. They're just selling old books like what you see in this picture. Being participated on this month theme "Books", I think this is the best moment to take a shot of the store.

Cafe at Sanur Beach

Enjoying the beauty of a beach while drinking in a cafe is one of a nice options to do at a beach. At Sanur beach we have this option among others. This cafe is one of several cafes available at Sanur Beach which usually has many visitors at day time. When I took this picture it was early in the morning. The cafe was still very quite, however there're still some stewards to serve you with breakfast if required.
