We had booked the deluxe room with ocean view, but once we arrived we were booked into a remote bungalow midst a garden that was in full construction (big sand hills).

You definitely get better value for money elsewhere on the island.

After this we headed back to our room before going out for dinner, on the way the hotel man Adu showed us a good spot to see big lizards - they were around 1m long!
The next day we went diving with the same group again ...
.....and it did seem very different!
Had local soups for lunch at Ceris Bar on the southern corner of the island.
We snorkelled and swam in the afternoon.
Ŵe walked a few metres round the corner to watch the sun set. In the evening we returned to Orong Bar.
... to our first attack of push-on-itis. The heavens opened as we arrived and we had our first opportunity to test our luminescent yellow ponchos. Like canary coloured caped crusaders we flapped our way along the main road to the capital City Mataram, which we hit at rush hour. We had got used to Balinese style heavy traffic, but Lombok was a whole different ball game. Twice the speed and none of the skill. A fairly terrifying experience which made ...
