Patches of Green (Paradise for Rent)

"Wash you eyes with beauty" once someone said to me not long after I had arrived in Bali. While one should think that this is a fairly easy on the paradise island I have found it to be a quiet difficult task. One in which I constantly have to try and blend out the big view in order to only focus onto the small patches of paradise that still are left. "Patches of Green" refers to the patches of rice fields that more and more get absorbed and overrun by construction. Little green islands of a rural Bali in a ever growing tsunami of concrete, asphalt and trash. One of the things I miss most here is a sky not disturbed by walls.
