Hotel Tjampuhan Reception, Ubud, Bali

Arrival is a pleasure. A glass inside a holder of closely woven cane is presented, filled with a dark drink. It is alcoholic, though no enquiry is made about whether you might want it; rice wine (brem) with sprite. It is a great and weird drink, a good idea. It comes with a cold towel. The filling in of the form which allows the government to keep very close tabs indeed on visitors is made as pleasurable as it can be.
