Here now and now here or nowhere
The title of this blog comes from a play on words that "now here" is also the same letters as "nowhere" just with a space added in the middle. I am always trying to get better at being in the here and now, and I've always been a bit of a joker so that is why I chose this name.

My First Little Tour of Bali
As mentioned in the last post, on my first day here in Bali I went on a tour with 3 fun Korean girls whom I shared an aisle with on the plane in. After the Elephant Temple we went to an agri-tourism spot to see local flora and it's fruits in action, including cacao and coffee. For coffee, Bali hypes their weasel coffee as some of the best in the world. The plot is that the weasel eats the best berries and then poops them out, taking out the bad enzymes and leaving the good ones and caffeine. At the end of the tour we got a little tea and coffee sampling. After there we headed up to see Gunung Batur, a beautiful domed volcano on the northeast of the island. We had lunch overlooking the volcano and surrounding view. Because it's holiday time (like everyday seems to be a new one or just a party in the street) there were parades of people marching down with music being played and other who-knows-what things happening. Some sounded amazing and it was pretty to see them all in front of the volcano.
