What would a trip in Bali be without visiting another waterfall? This time, my "bali family" and I went to the Gitgit twin waterfalls which are quite in the north of Bali. It was probably the most magical place I've ever seen. We imagined fairies and mermaids living here and enjoyed the swirling air that made water drops flying and floating through the air.  After that, we also went to a famous temple of Bali which is located on a lake. The clouds hang so deep down that you felt like you could touch them if you would just stretch your arm high enough.  It was really a day to remember!  Unluckily, by the time we came back, I already felt sick and then, I didn't know that this would keep me in bed for a while...

Another day, another waterfall.  Today, two other volunteers and I visited the Dusun Kuning waterfall after teaching.  This was effort! I estimate we had to climb about 300 or 400 hundreds steps (one way) to get to the waterfall. Leg day and waterfall day. This wicked waterfall and lush green rainforest made me forget about all my thoughts.

Sooo... there was a Vegan Festival this weekend here in Ubud. Since I am a passionate vegan and cruelty-hater, you can guess where I spent this day.

And again, some other volunteers and I went to Klungkung, where many evacuees have stayed since there is the eruption alert level 4 out of 4 for the volcano Mount Agung. With the members of the project, we went to this camp and provided some food for them. It was shocking to see how almost 300 people lived under the couple of roofs and sleep on the floor.

Today, another volunteer I've made friends with and I went to the holy springs, not far away from Ubud. They are located next to a big temple and I estimate they consist of more than 30 small springs as you can see them below. The holy water runs into a kind of pool in which big - I mean really big - fish are swimming. I took some time for me to dare to go into the water, but it was so worth it. You literally had the holy water all for yourself and could take your time to purify you body and soul at each of the springs. Every spring has a different meaning - one is for health, one is for luck, ... You really had to go into the water wearing the traditional Balinese skirt "Sarong" and covering your shoulders, just as locals would do it - I have to say I'm proud to finally possess a real traditional Sarong with belt now!

I woke up at 4 am this morning and came up with the idea of going to Kuta, to get some "vitamin sea". So as soon as I stood up, I packed my little backpack, called a motorbike taxi and went to Kuta. After some shopping I happened to meet someone again I met in Kuta about a month ago, so we spent that evening together and saw the most beautiful sunset.
