In the morning Wayan comes to make breakfast. She comes to the door and balanced on her head is a tray with all the ingredients. and then she sets up in the kitchen and cooks fried rice or a noodle dish or pancakes, whatever we asked for the day prior. We also get a bowl of freshly sliced fruit, typically dragon fruit, papaya, and, ugh, passionfruit, about which am passionately opposed. Paul likes it though, he can have mine. After we areserved she washes the cooking utensils, puts them away, then leaves. I find it odd having someone come to the house and cook and clean. I beat her to the dishes so at least its one less task for her.

Agung Rai Museum of Art      
I really like the Agung Rai Museum of Art. This museum has a beautiful collection of modern art, much of it depicting traditional life in Bali. It is part of a large complex featuring a hotel, an outdoor theater, rice paddies, a restaurant (we enjoyed lunch there) and extensive gardens. I especially like the paintings by Walter Spies, a German artist who had the misfortune of being interned by the Russians in WW I and then again by the Dutch in WW II, in both cases for the sole reason that he carried a German passport. While we walked the grounds I talked to a painter working on a large piece, I observed a sculptor carving wood, and in the background there were a couple of gamelan musicians playing.

Made Kedol's “Golden Rice”      
My favorite piece, it really is spectacular in person, with a three-dimensional quality to it yet it's just oil on canvas. I took the photo guiltily as they prohibit photography inside the museum.

Paul plus two head-sized fruits      
While exploring the Agung Rai Museum of Art we encountered some trees dangling these head-sized fruits. I asked someone what they were but I didn't catch the fruit's name but I did catch that it's bitter tasting.
