Did you know that there are over 20,000 temples in Bali? They are everywhere and the magic and energy can be felt everywhere.
In order to go a temple, the proper attire must be worn: cabilla (blouse), sarong without fringes, and a sash or belt. Men have to wear a sarong as well.
So far, I have only visited two temples! Based on my calculation, I need to spend another 19,998 days! (Just kidding, Wilma! I’ll be back soon to start working again!)
Here is a picture of me, Margaret, and Gay wearing our temple attire after being purified by a priest. We were bathed in holy water and then rice was place on our temples, third eye, throat, and head. We were giving a headband to display to the community that we had been purified.

Here I am at the waterfall just below the temple:
