With food this fresh and delicious I could imagine becoming 95% vegetarian. Today I took a taxi into town after the rain. I had several options for lunch including Indian, Italian, and Thai food. I ended up just wanting to come back to the Wellness Spa for healthy, clean food. Below are photos of the pool, the flooding, Olive hanging out in the room, and the “spirt houses.”

Most homes and businesses have a spirit house placed in an auspicious spot, most often in a corner of the property. The location may be chosen after consultation with a Brahmin priest. The spirit house is normally in the form of a miniature house or temple, and is mounted on a pillar or on a dais.

The house is intended to provide a shelter for spirits that could cause problems for the people if not appeased. The shrines often include images of people and animals. Votive offerings are left at the house to propitiate the spirits. More elaborate installations include an altar for this purpose.
