Shopping in Ubud: Jl Dewi Sita

After a couple of banana pancakes and some tropical fruits from the Hotel Tjampuhan, I hit the shops with Miss K. She was targeted, and I dawdled. Both Miss K and I separately decided we needed some organic soap from Kou on Jl Dewi Sita, not far from the corner of Jl Monkey Forest. At the time we were unaware of the fascinating characteristic of the soap that it is aged for one month. Why, the rather ornate booklet which comes with the soap does not explain. There is a good second hand bookshop nearby, with two amazing and unusual ornately painted chairs inside. Yoga and Sexual Power featured several times in the collection, along with The Celestine Prophecy, and some better books. The owner rents out standard texts on Bali, including some old hardback books with photos, for some quite substantial amount I no longer recall (200,00 Rp?) per 3 months.
