Living in Bali has its rewards

This week we had a special invitation to the home of a Balinese friend who had two things to celebrate.  There is also a ceremony to celebrate everything in Bali, but these were special.  Firstly, Nyoman had finished construction on a new home and it HAD to be blessed.  Secondly, after ten years, Nyoman was being ordained as a top level Hindu priest.  The ceremonies lasted over a period of three days, but since he is a true friend, we were specifically invited to a buffer dinner.  There was still gamelan music and Balinese singing, but no religious ceremonies.  Those had been completed earlier in the day.
