We drove up the slopes of Mt Batur, and then down through beautiful clove farming communities. The price of cloves has been high recently, and our driver told us how rich all the clove farmers were at the moment. Their homes did not show it. Clove trees are biggish things with reddish brown aspects amongst their verdure. Plastic sheets weighed down by logs on four sides lined the roadside, with great quantities of cloves set out to dry. We passed too through orange plantations.
