Scooting in rural Bali

01.05.11 | 2 Comments

We finally gathered the courage to rent a scooter for 50,000 rupiah (about $5) in Amed, a stretch of several fishing villages in East Bali. The feel is definitely much more rural than around Ubud.

It was such a thrill to be in control of our moving around after so many cab/bus rides we have been taking here.

When we left, the tank was a little low, so we got some petrol at a “petrol station” such as this one. Gotta love the plastic bottles!

Along the way, it was fun seeing some local life like this woman who I think was about to prepare some small baskets for Hindu offerings.

Or these kids having fun on a bike.

The road ahead of us…

And here’s the video of a pretty representative chunk of the road so you can pretend you were there with us.
