Postcards from Bali- 3


In case you thought the beauty of Bali is limited to its natural areas, this set of postcards should dispel the notion. The Balinese women are petite, pretty, and when they dance, very artistic. The first pic shows ritual offerings they make at the temple. Usually, nicely woven bamboo baskets contain the offerings, and a lot of time goes into preparing them. The headgear in the second pic also looks very different.

By the way, a lot of people wear a (frangipani) flower perched on their ear, and it apparently means they have finished prayers- somewhat like our tilak or vibhuti.
