Don't tell me you weren't warned!

I am so thrilled with myself, did manage to post the pictures after all. Coming from a tech nincompoop it does mean a lot. Ubud was one of the high points for me in 2005, as I am sure, it was for lots of other folks as well. Here are some moments, re-lived as they can only be through pictures.

I am sure, you have already read about the festival (how could you not?). Well, if it slipped your radar screens, here's the link again, no more excuses:

Visit it even if you don't want to read my piece, its a great way to track all things literary, particularly Asian writer.
Happy viewing and reading!
