“The Como Shambhala Estate in Ubud has to be one of my favorite places on Earth. It’s located in the Sayan Valley, cantilevered over the hillside looking down to the river below.”

Some snapshots from a weekend in Ubud at the Como Shambhala Estate and from the Hash House Harriers run through the rice fields.
The Hash House Harriers organize weekly runs through rural areas that have retained their identities despite the growing tourism influences affecting other parts of Bali.
I highly recommend the HHH as a way of seeing rural Bali at its best.

Gorgeous reflection of the house on the rice field.
From the top of the valley the sun peers through the leaves.
Working hard in the field all day.
People are so friendly and happy in the villages in Bali.
