Lucky for us it was heading out so we spent most of the day on the beach again finishing yet more books which means yet another visit to the book exchange when we get back to Kuta. My favourite tree did of course have its disadvantages, things would drop on me occasionally, sometimes they were buds which was fine, sometimes more unsavoury things like ants of the red variety that bite
We had a bottle of coke on the beach for lunch as neither of us felt that hungry then went back to the hut and Andrew did so well to endure watching Sex and the City: The Movie without moaning too much. All this because we have downloaded the second one so I thought it a good idea that he watched the first to give him a heads up as he hadn’t seen any of the series, why would he? I think he only threw a few v signs at the screen throughout so I would call that a success. We took a walk down to the internet shop that charges extortionate rates but needs must and we wanted to check e-mails and we found out that our friends Jen and Mark have had a little boy called Ethan Mark so massive congratulations to them – we can’t wait to meet him when we eventually get home.
We took a long walk almost to the top of the island nearly being run over by the horses and carts that ply the beach front – Andrew is sure that each and every one is evil and has it in for him – he says that they ‘look at him funny’
On the way back to the hut all the Muslims in the village where tucking in to their post sunset feast. If fasting all day isn’t hard enough I can’t imagine what it must be like in the extreme heat when you aren’t even allowed to have a sip of water, it shows amazing strength of character, especially for most people on the island who work in the service industry preparing and serving food for all the tourists. Respect where respect is due.
