ACTIVITY CULTURE
Visitors are most welcome to join family events such as weddings and funerals, and all village temple or community ceremonies. It is a pleasure to have you join the spirit. To show your respect and gratitude, it is very important to wear a sarong and waist scarf when entering the temples at all times and during street processions. Photography is acceptable but, don’t walk in front of the sitting people during prayer time...keep yourself lower than the priest. Please ask Wayan if you are unsure. He can arrange a temple visit in his village and you can accompany him. If you want to give a small donation to the temple or family, that is up to you. There is no pressure to give. If you want to, do so...This is KARMA.

ACTIVITY IN-HOUSE
What else to do while you are there? Feel free to putter around in the garden and pick bananas and other fruit for your meals. Putri can teach you a recipe for a traditional dish so you can pick the herbs and ginger, turmeric and prepare them from scratch. During the day, walk through the fields along the waterways and see how the locals tend their crops. Wayan enjoys taking the guests on nature walks to see how chocolate, coffee, cinnamon and other plants are grown. Enjoy a massage, visit the little village schools, ride a bike around the neighbouring villages, or go for a swim at the river. During the evenings, swing in the hammock in the bale above the kitchen and read . We have a library full of interesting books and DVD's to watch on your computer or the TV. Don't worry, there is plenty to do. Or simply sit back and watch the rice grow!

ACTIVITY IN VILLAGE
Pesalakan village is a very traditional village and home to 200 friendly families. They are enjoying the interaction of our guests. Nightly volleyball is practiced in the central road and you will hear the sounds of the gamelan playing in the background. Feel free to walk around the back streets seeing how the locals live.

We are surrounded by rice fields in all directions. Set out and have long rice field walks. Join in the planting or harvesting, pick the ceremony flowers with the workers, take photos of the cute cows looking at you. Be careful it can get slippery in the fields during the rainy season so wear sturdy shoes that can get muddy. One guest from Italy soaked herself in the mud one day - that was quite the scene!!

There is a waterfall not too far away and small country roads to follow to the nearby towns making a loop from one town to another. If you would like a guide, just ask! Putri enjoys sharing where she used to climb down to the Kris river at Champuan (meeting of 3 rivers) to wash her clothes when she was living at her family’s home just a short distance away. There is also a very sacred bathing and a meditation chamber where the ancient Hindu king came to pray!
