Once back to the resort, Sam and I had our massage, a 90 minute Balinese hot stone massage that was sublime. We staggered out of the spa to the pool side, where Vick made me a cup of tea and Sam chatted to some new arrivals. We decided to go to Vincent's for dinner so I need to go now and give them a call so we ...
