Photo Friday – Playground After Ceremony

Boys on playground after purification ceremony at Pura Ulun Danu Batan

Boys on playground after purification ceremony at Pura Ulun Danu Batan

Our driver & guide in Bali was wonderful.  Except one, every temple we visited was in the middle of a ceremony.  Pura Ulun Danu Bratan was no exception.  We were able to watch a good deal of the purification ritual during our visit.  (Kinda like Ash Wednesday, but rice was put on the forehead rather than palm ashes.)

As the ceremony wound down, we headed up the hill to let Mirielle run off some energy before hopping back in the car to find lunch.  Just outside of the temple was a playground.  Rusting apart and probably violating most US safety regulations, the 1970 vintage playground was still enjoyed by the local boys.  In their finest “temple” clothes they ran around, poked each other, laughed, pushed the swing and even cautiously teased Mirielle.
