As with all islands, spotting a good fashion look can be hard as most people tend to wear flip flops and a bikini. Not that there is anything wrong with this, mind you. I am all for good beachwear...but, we managed to find a look that will no doubt carry us through to our trip to Cape Town next year...I saw this outfit at the Uluwatu temple and I loved the proportion and dare I say, it does have a bit of Dries Van Noten about it, don't you think? I have the prefect shirt and trouser combination for this look...and I am always a sucker for a head scarf tied well...now all I must do is hunt down some amazing fabric to tie around my waist...think I will ask my fabulous aunt in Cape Town if she has some to spare!Hopefully she has some ideas for me...
After a thirty degree temperature difference between Switzerland and Bali, I have to say that getting back into the swing of things is tough business...but I am starting to feel normal again. The trip was sensational. The beach was wonderful, the food was amazing and the kindness and generosity of the people of Bali, make visiting this country a remarkable experience. Despite soaring temperatures, we managed to rest a lot, with me living in the pool practically. Added to this a three night stay at a jungle retreat, then you could say we had the best of both worlds. We could not ignore the spiritual side of Bali, as on almost every street corner there is a shrine, so we made a visit to Uluwatu temple, built on a cliff long ago to protect the country from bad spirits. It was a good outing until a monkey tried to steal my Gucci glasses! I slapped him and he dropped them...a tactic I think that was lucky for me but I would not recommend further...maybe my monkey was in a generous mood...all in all, it was just the right type of break we needed and now, it is onwards and forwards to Christmas and the new year...but until that rolls around, we are back bringing you more wonderful faces to light up your day...
