Bali 1981 - Ubud, Mount Batur and the rice paddies. - Alan Dodds Photography

Bali 1981 - a gentler time in this magic island's history.

This is a pictorial story of a trip to Bali in 1981. Traveling around the island by hired motor cycle or bemos, Chris and I stayed in small villages amid the rice terraces and climbed to the top of the volcano of Mount Batur

We stay with a master carver and marvel at the intricacy of his miniature figures.

Even in Ubud, now crowded with tourists (2020), life was lived at a much slower pace and visitors were still in the minority.
