With a backdrop of rice fields diners at local Warung* are treated to a lullaby of gentle swishing as rice grass blows in the wind. The sound is ridiculously relaxing and on my third day in Bali it cleared me of my city woes and made me realise that I am in fact on holiday..ahhhhh. Seeing the small rice fields scattered near my villa made me want to see one on a larger scale, and so we hired a driver for the day to do some sightseeing. At around $60 AUD for a full day, I would definitely recommend having a private tour.
It was on this day that I realised my camera lens is having a few issues, focusing on everything and nothing at the same time, but I managed to get a few shots to share with you below. The field we visited was huge and we were able to walk along the steps which are manicured, square and dry, I have no idea how they stay so perfect with all of the water, but standing at the top and looking down was an extremely impressive experience.
