Statues of Bali

I was so fascinated by the stonework in Bali. Every restaurant, temple and even nicer homes had many beautiful statues. They often put their daily offering and incense on or around the statues, as you'll see. Most people in Bali practice Hinduism, unlike the rest of Indonesia which practices Islam. It was so amazing to see a different culture. I'm so accustomed to the Buddhist style that I've seen in every other country I've been to in Asia... it was so refreshing to see something new.

Offerings are piled at the bottom of the statue. You can see offerings everywhere you go.

Part of the ambiance of our hotel, Mainski, on Nusa Lembongan. The outside was far nicer than our room.
