The view from just outside my room.
What could be better? Out of the Bale, across about a metre of sand, down some steps and into the cool clear water. I swam twice a day.
I was just playing on the net and decided to see if there was an ashram in Bali and lo and behold, I found one.
The Gendong Gandhi Ashram sounded just the place for me. Away from it all, peaceful and right on the beach. Simple food, vegetarian with sea food - perfect, shared together as per usual ashram life with a few yoga lessons thrown in.
So that is where I have been these last four days. The people and the place is wonderful, simple (like me) and good for the soul. They have a really extensive library with all sorts of yoga, philosophy, Hindu and scripture books and I managed to read three. I purposely didn’t take my laptop so that I would truly be away from it all.
They also house a few orphans or children with parents who just can’t afford to look after them, and they are delightful. And there is also a small kindergarten on the grounds. I loved it.
Just a few photos to get you in the mood. Believe me, if you really need a break, this is the place.
