We stayed one night in this resort, located on Hanoman road, right in the middle of action. Shopping literally on your doorstep, 10/10 for location. We got a cottage for a hundred dollars, but we did feel that it was not worth the money we paid - though it had all the amenities, it didn't have a good decor (dark and dingy comes to the mind) and the biggest minus was that the door had no lock! That was very worrying. The resort itself has Pretty grounds, helpful staff, the room comes with a complimentary filing breakfast - in short, we don't regret staying here, as we did book the room at the last minute.

... from a coffee bean fermented in the gut of a civet. I was hesitant but Geoff was keen, so he took us to a small plantation where they showed us the wee civets (like little possums) and gave us a taste testing of the Luwak and several other flavoured coffees and teas. The Luwak was surprisingly very good! Mia loved the vanilla coffee and so we bought a bag of that and a bag of Luwak on the way out. The kids are always pleased to get back to the villa so they can jump in ...
... it was time to head back.
The journey home was as long and bumpy as on the way out, everyone was feeling shattered but happy and hot. With Scotty up front singing and getting splashed luck or fate played a kind hand and suddenly a tall dark fin was spotted protruding from the sea, and the team of salty travellers were rewarded by the spectacular sight of a killer whale about 20m away. If this was not enough one of these incredible beasts swam directly under the boat, and with ...
... my salad as that's something that you can't get anywhere in Bali, unless it is in an Italian restaurant. It was a very nice evening and a good farewell dinner for the three who are going on Saturday. It will be so strange when they are gone, especially Mel who has been here for my whole time, but I know that we will keep in contact and I will follow the rest of their travels on facebook :)
Friday - I had the most amazing start to the day today, when I ...
