Like most of Southeast Asia, Bali is a swarm of motorbikes weaving in and out of traffic carrying small families. It might have been the sheer numbers or the fact that our border collie is obsessed with them, but, on our trip to Bali, Mirielle became fixated on motorcycles. This was a dangerous fancy as she wanted to climb on every parked bike she found. The tail pipes were scorching hot if recently ridden.
The risk of bodily harm was worth it, as we discovered our first distracting driving game. Long before she was ready for ‘I spy with my little eye” we would point out motorcycles to get her attention. “Look Boo, Motorcycle.” “Look Boo, baby on motorcycle.” “Mirielle, where is the motorcycle?”
This picture was taken while we were walking near the villages of Batuan and Sukawati, outside of a mask carver’s studio. Ketut, one of our escorts, entertained Mirielle on the Motoscooter, while we learned about making Barongs.
