These kids were on the same bike. One in front of dad and one on the back.

Roosters to the older men are the equivalent to children and their kites. Around 1 PM and 6 PM everyday, about ten men gather around with their prized roosters. They usually squat around together, smoking cigarettes and gently holding and stroking their roosters. They are very colorful and seem to be pretty well-behaved, so I guess I can understand why they are so proud; but, really, this passive-yet-macho rooster time is still a mystery to all of us at the house. Michael had to capture some portraits of these men with their pets, who wake us up with their crowing around 5 AM every morning.
Lucky for him, the men were more than happy to pose. They even went to far as to have their roosters fight each other in the street! We've been told that cock fighting is a popular past time, and though none of the birds were hurt, a few lost some nice, big feathers.
Needless to say, the boys are now making a lot of "cock" jokes...most of which are pretty hilarious. Please enjoy Michael's now famous "cock pictures". : )

Everyday we see dozens of kites in the sky. The kids here all ride their bicycles around with their friends and almost each one has their own kite strapped on their back. After school we see them flying over the rice paddies and all the way up into the hills. It seems like such a nice past time that I'm tempted to get my own kite the next time I go to town. They are mostly animal shapes, like birds, cats, and owls. We were thinking of making a RACI kite perhaps...?

When we first arrived in Bali, Michael and I wanted to get some coffee and asked Made (who picked us up) where we could get some. He pointed and said, "take your time, you're in Bali now." and it's been that kind of easy going vibe since. I work better when there is less pressure surrounding my projects.
