We went to Ubud on Sunday, January 27. On a motorbike. Some streets were flooded but it was still possible to ride the bike through the small rivers.
What has to be done, has to be done. Offerings are of utmost priority for Balinese and the weather is not important. Important are the waiting powers of the other worlds.

I took the photo at the island of Gili Meno near Lombok, last week. The boats are used for fishing, and for charter for tourists for snorkeling and also for chartered transport to Lombok and back.
About me: I'm an amateur photographer, joined Flickr about 3 or 4 weeks ago, am on a steep learning curve (like you, once the engine starts.....) and have just had my first visit to Indonesia where I spent most of my time on Lombok.

Indonesian police officers wait in nervous anticipation, the enthusiastic crowd of tens of thousands of sign-waving and chanting protesters slowly approaching in the sticky Javanese heat. President Bush was making a stop at the Indonesian presidential palace in November, 2006, for a meeting with the Indonesian President. The rally that was organized to greet (protest) Bush as he arrived was, in all, peaceful, though there was certainly tension in the air.

Very young and excited (or fearful?) tigress noticing the huge older male on the other site......
The Sumatran tiger is only found in Sumatra, a large island in western Indonesia. It lives anywhere from lowland forests to mountain forest and inhabit many unprotected areas.
Only about 400 live in game reserves and national parks and the rest are spread out in areas that are quickly being lost to agriculture. The reserves are not safe because despite conservation efforts, many tigers are killed by poachers each year.
In 2007, The Indonesian Forestry Ministry and Safari Park have established cooperation with the Australian Zoo for the conservation of Sumatran tigers and other endangered species.

L'animismo è una radice fondamentale della cultura di Bali, e per i suoi abitanti gli spiriti sono ovunque.
Le offerte effimere presentate ogni mattina in ogni casa, negozio, ufficio sono presentate in egual misura agli dèi buoni ed ai dèmoni.
Si tratta di opere d'arte in miniatura destinate a non durare nel tempo.

I was awaiting dinner at a small warung (food stall) in Garut,
Indonesia, a hot springs "resort" in Java, when a group of boisterous
women came in. Excited by the prospect of a photo, 3 of the women
begged for a photo. Since I had my 105mm fixed focal length attached
I couldn't really get a group photo, so instead I took this photo of
the woman closest to me, who only reluctantly agreed after her friends
convinced her. I used a high shutter speed and off camera flash to
get a more dramatic lighting effect.
