We changed quarters today and are now in a room that is part of “Green Lion Bali” (the volunteer coordinator on the ground). The picture above is our view across the street.
It is more rustic then I am used to but less Spartan than a room in the barracks at West Point. I know, easy comparisons.
The lamentations of the roosters surround us. That will take some “getting used to.” I know we are on the outskirts of Ubud and this is orientation week. That is about it.
Everyone takes their shoes off when they go inside a restaurant here. That is totally new to me as I am used to the “no shirt, no shoes, no service” mantra of the United States. This is the exact opposite. I suppose it makes sense when I think about the shit we drag in places on the bottom of our shoes, but this will take some getting used to. Time to invest in sandals.
