... nice but it took us over an hour to get thru immigration .... Not fun when its 1am Bali time and about 3am on ours!!! Missed the prepaid taxi stand but got a taxi for 120,000. Worst driver ever but nice bloke.
Justin in his wisdom got us dropped at Coco Mart, Sanur instead of our hotel so we could grab beers and then we couldn't remember if it was up or down to the Duck Nutz hotel. With some advice from a drunk English lady we found our hotel and ...
... drive up to Bangli, a beautiful hillside town where Pura Kehen is located. With a GPS leading our way we can confidently drive our approximately 50 kilometers drive with a few stops in some attractive tourism spots like Batubulan, the island capital of barong, Celuk, the silversmith village, then Singapadu, the village of stone carvers, and a few others.

... a friend acquainted in the distant land of Los Angeles. The same territory where I had that fateful lunch with Joe Rohde, designer of Disney's Animal Kingdom.
Joe is one of those people that just has an aura that sparks your imagination. Trinkets from his travels dangle from his left ear and his office is covered with masks, designs, and books from every corner of the planet.

Lovely pool, great breakfast and friendly staff. Little bit out of the way for Kuta, on a big main road that is hard to cross any time of the day. Taxis are cheap and hotel staff can help with transport. Limited veggie options on the main menu and not many other places to eat near by except a 24 hour mini-mart and a seafood and grill place.
