Life on the road to Ubud

The road to Ubud is extremely busy!

From sun up to sundown, 

people go about their daily chores by foot or by bike.

 I spied the egg man with his fresh fetch of the day ....

.... the cheery soul taking his not-so-cheery daughter to school

.... the man carrying a basket of offerings on his head 
(The fact that he was a pillion passenger was all the more impressive)

.... the gentle-faced basket weaver carrying his wares to the market

.... and the schoolboy with a cheeky grin

Greeting motorbike riders through the car window was de rigeur!

and seated side-saddle, the female pillion passengers and their wares managed admirably

It was indeed a busy trip to Ubud!


  1. Such character captured in their faces and the smiles are so so beautiful!! Has been so long since I have been to Bali busting to get back there.
