    While staying at the Blue Moon resort we got one of the guys (Ketut) to take us on a drive around the area for a couple of hours.
    He took us up into the hills to show us the area that he comes from. I doubt that too many tourists see this part of Bali.
    We stopped at his cousin's house (who also happens to work at Blue Moon) so he could shimmy up the tree to pick some coconuts for us. WOW, I can't believe how quick he made it to the top!
    Fresh coconut juice was on the menu that night.
    I also found out that it's very good to drink the day after you've drunk way too much Arak!! No, it wasn't me......some of the staff had a fun night singing & playing guitar and drinking shots of Arak, coke & lime juice!!!! Have to admit it was a nice drink, but I only had two.

    Temple with a view

    Temple

    At 3,300 feet, getting there is half the fun, especially if you decide to get there by way of the 1,700 stone steps
    We went by 4 wheel drive and it still seemed like it was quite a climb
    Pura Lempuyang Luhur is a very important temple because of its location, at the top of the island's easternmost mountain..
    There has probably been a temple on this remote and sacred site since pre-Hindu times.
    The temple is not large but the view is spectacular.
    There were several buses full of worshipers that arrived there about the same time as we did. They seemed to all have lunch with them so they planned to stay awhile, There were also some food stalls in the parking area.
    There were no touts, no one bothered us, a very untouristy location.
