... of the hotels were asking a way higher price than any of us wanted to pay so we were all giving up when we found a run down hotel that didn't look like it had been in use in years but they offered us the rooms for 1GBP a night and the beds were clean so despite the fact the doors didn't lock, the plug sockets were hanging off the wall, the showers didn't work....but it was 1GBP a night! What more were we hoping for.
... name a few. We even got to put birds on our shoulders, head and arms and take pictures with them- which we ended up purchasing at the end. There was one specific bird- it was a bird of paradise- he was quite entertaining. He would say hello, what and you. When mom and I said goodbye to him he said awwwwe. He was so awesome.
From the Bird Park we headed to the silver ...
... in Bali with Riza and Marco - THANKS AGAIN - so I don't need to worry about it while traveling with Brigitte, as we won't be doing any diving. As I plan to go to the Lembeh Strait in Sulawesi, Indonesia, I will pick it up some time on the way next year :-)
It has been a wonderful time in Bali and I will be happy to come back next year.
