I really enjoyed this beautiful spacious bungalow in the middle of the rice fields and specially this huge swimming pool, where real swimming was my daily practice :) Friendly staff, good service and very nice room with loooots of light.

After prayers we walked back in procession to the temple under a corridor of palm trees with the band playing their drums behind us.

... you can ride a motorbike as everywhere I asked said they needed a minimum of two people to cover the costs. I opted to go to Ubud next which had a steady stream of people visiting and booked the bus for the next day. Gerald managed to find a motorbike to take him where he wanted to go for not too bad a price so decided to leave today. After he left I had a beach day sunbathing, reading and swimming. The sea hardly had any waves and it was nice to ...
