On arriving at Kintamani it was so cloudy and misty Agung Batur, the Volcano was completely invisible all you could see was white. Thankfully the next morning the cloud lifted, there was a crisp clear sky and Agung Batur stood majestically for all to see.
I had joined Sandy, Nicki and Christiana for the last week, to batik, sketch and relax. It was 7 am and we were off to Kintamani market, just round the corner from Lakeview Hotel where I was staying. It had been open since 4 am and we only saw the tail end, but it was still a feast for the eye; so much colour, all sorts of fruits, nuts, vegetables and spices, people smiling and no hassle all with the amazing backdrop of the Volcano and Lake Batur.
People were very friendly and wanted to know where I was from, some could speak a little English, so I could engage in conversation in a small way. They were quite happy about me taking photographs fortunately so I took full advantage !
One thought on “Kintamani, the Volcano and the Market”
Mangoes for breakfast! Bliss. I loved your market pictures! Imagine making all those temple offerings daily. I also loved the batiks that you did. You must have relished the change of pace and the chance to be creative yourself.
PHEW…nearly home! Jxxx
