Kuta: Conta Part II
A visit to Ubud for a cat-poo-ccino seems to help me get over the previous night. Cat coffee, or Coffee Luwak is akin to the weasel coffee of Vietnam. However it’s far more common to find the organically grown coffee where the cats are allowed to roam the trees freely. Try the first floor of the craft markets in Ubud for a little history and a nice chat with the nice Balinese fellow selling it for 30,000 a cup. I spend some time talking to monkeys and gods at cliff top temple Pura Luhur Uluwatu, seemingly to enlighten me to the genuine culture here. Even if it is over-run with other tourists, and seems a little bit of a shame that the whole island and it’s traditions have become a selling point. I love temples. They are mainly Hindu here and really interesting to look at in comparison to those I am used to seeing in places like Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. Structurally they are much more simple and take on the look of a simple thatch tiered pagoda. I am yet to find a Buddhist temple, for which I am most keen to investigate. I don’t know what I’m really doing here (pah, after all that planning) but maybe Buddha can help show me the way.
