Found in Ubud: Starbucks, Ubud style

Ubud Starbucks_1280_for_Web

Nestled in right along the main street in Ubud is everyone’s favorite/hated neighbor, Starbucks.  I’m always torn upon seeing these, and I see them whereever I go, because at the same time it is both comforting to see something of home, and it is simultaneously the epitome of corporate expansionism and a sign that the west is corrupting every last native tourist destination.  Either way, we liked the way they at least tried to do up their sign in a traditional, wooden style as Bali in general, and specifically Ubud is known for it’s woodworking.
