‘Twas the second night of Chanukah
And in the town of Ubud
A party was happening
As we knew it should
We chilled at the lounge
Where latkes were fried
We meditated, sang songs
Ate, Prayed and Laughed (till the rain died)
The beers were aplenty
The food menu was small
Fresh salad for nibblers
Free range chickens for all
Greg lit three candles
In the chanukiah
Made of coconut bowls
Would you believe: a menorah made of kelapa!
The Maccabee story was read
To the crowd
No Balinese neighbors complained
Were we really not loud?
Love it! What rich cross-cultural experiences abound in Ubud!
Happy Chanukah, Amit! I’m glad to see you are getting to spend it with good friends.
I certainly did! Happy holidays to you 😉
What a happy time was had by all! Happy Chanukah 🙂
Yes, very happy, with laughter, songs and good food! Hope you have a wonderful holiday & new year, see you in ’13 😉
