Bali - John Hardy Does it Again
Ah, to live in Bali. Rice paddies. Mystical offerings. Fresh food. Teak wood. Breathtaking views of greenery. Okay, that's enough. But here I go again dreaming about being in Ubud, thanks to John Hardy. The jewelry designer extraordinaire has now turned his eye to eco-living, or rather eco-tourism by constructing a compound or rather hotel, Bambu Indah, comprised of houses made out of old teak homes. According to Travel and Leisure, "Guests can swim in the natural pool, walk in the surrounding rice paddies, and dine by candlelight at the Ayung River’s edge. Need I say more????
And he's also designed a fabu looking silver bamboo bracelet. He uses the proceeds to plant bamboo somewhere on the island, contributing even further to long-term sustainability. Think I may need to put my name on an order list.
