Bali - Day 6

Day 6 itinerary: Shopping at Nusa Dua, Kuta and around Ubud area for gifts. Kecak & Fire Dance performance in Ubud at night.

Edlynne waking up to a lazy morning. Daddy still sleeping...

Beach and sand at Kuta beach where we have our lunch - meat ball soups & roast pig rice. Yummy! Posted by Picasa

Dinner while waiting for the Kecak & Fire Dance.

Just a note: Kecak Dance is a ritual dance created in the early 1930's for the movie "Island of the Demons" by the German painter and intellectural Walter Spies. It have a impressive circular chorus of bare chested male singers (I think about 50 of them), chanting over a heap of fire.

The dance was in a temple. It was dark and starting to rain. I quickly covered the sleeping Edlynne and went into a shelter to watch. Didn't saw much. It was a bit boring with the chants and at some parts I nearly fell asleep too...
