This morning we left the Beautiful Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay and rode to Ubud, Bali where we will be staying for the next five night.  This area of Bali is about 2 hours from Jimbaran and is near the jungle.

On the way we we encountered very narrow roads and 100s of motorbikes driven by wild drivers.  The motor scooters were weaving in and out of traffic like there were no rules.

Kopi luwakIMG 2654

Tidbit from Wikipedia:
Kopi luwak, also known as civet coffee, is a coffee that consists of partially digested coffee cherries, which have been eaten and defecated by the Asian palm civet. The cherries are fermented as they pass through a civet's intestines, and after being defecated with other fecal matter, they are collected.”

I don’t drink coffee so I certainly wouldn’t drink Kopi luwak, but it’s a delicacy here.
Kopi Luwak coffee price starts at $160 per pound and reaches up to $600 for the most expensive types, where the civets roam freely and select the best beans themselves(as opposed to those kept in captivity.

Granell Kopi Luwak Coffee Beans – Ethically Sourced Wild Civet Coffee, Gourmet Coffee Beans, Indonesian Luwak Arabica Whole Bean Coffee, 3.5oz
