This is the home of my friend Balto, who is featured in the "People of the World" gallery. This house rests in a small hamlet, deep inside Lovina. It's the most relaxing place I can remember being, with plenty of beautiful people to take care of you and show you a good time.
A close up shot of the steps in front of Balto's house. The soft texture of the grass sprouting up between the hard, but smooth, stone, foot-path and the one leaf centered perfectly in the middle of it all. The steps just look like they lead to a warm and comforting place, which they do.
I was with some friends outside of Ubud, near the jungle. We met some locals who were thrilled to have tourists in their village. A few of them brought us down this path and through the jungle to a river. The path less traveled truly does make all the difference.
