Where I stayed
Kumpul-Kumpul Inn, Legian
Today was day off and we whizzed off
into countryside on moped thing.
It maddogsandenglishmen type thing tho
cos very hot. Anyway we got quite faar but also got a bit
Stopped in nice warung (if yu dont know
what this is you shud by now as I have mentioned it muchtimes
already) for best orange jiuce so far mosttimes the orange juice is
actually not orange juice but it is something else ike tangerine
which not the same at all.
We found beach with offering on only
for Hindu ceremonies so not allowed us on it then went to another
beach with juice bar and usual sellers – dont know why they sell
watches, sarongs, hats, big shells, sunglasses, bracelets –
actually some of these things are useful but actually if you have
come to Bali and have not got your sunglasses or know what time it is
then you are probly quite stupid so it serve you right.
The beach with juice we had coke and
watched waves. They were amazing cos they come in n hit the shore and
then go back out and hit the next wave coming and make a big jumping
water going from left to right or right to left across the sea like
the waves were being zipped up very mesmerising. We also test
temperature of sand using Matt;s special digital gauge thing. It 40
something C prob more.
All the sellers have conversation with
you which go:
How are yu
Fine how are you
ok where you from
Oh England what your name
Anna what's yours
Wayan/Maday/Tadek/Yoman (As I told you
before tey mostly have one of 4 names which is first-born, 2nd-born,
3rd-born, 4th-born – sometime in te past they were encouraged only
to have 4 children)
You want sarong
It pretty you buy only 70,000 milion
No thanks I got one already (show
sarong triumphantly from bag)
That not Bali sarong where you get this
etc etc etc
Anyway we not buy anything
Then after orange juices we go baack to
hotel and immediately dive in pool cos so hot.
By the way – Ant Challenge No 3 was a
dud bcause it gone by 11pm which nean another creature has got te
palm sugar not the ants. we are re-setting it tomorrow.
After pool lunch en swimming today
using bodyboards which was exciting altho make tummy sore from
leaning onto board and water today full of plastic and other debris
not nice and big stuff e.g. a long woodwormy pole of wood dangerous
cos cant see til you hit it. quite fun tho cos bodyboard on wave done
proper make you go all the way to shore which I done a few times.
Matt not so much he incompetent at bodyboard I spect. Also both our
tmmies hurty and i stay in to try more and sso tummy hurty more so
Matt more clever really.
Then sit on beach loungers til sunset
with andy and Mikol sitting one row behind bit like cinema like we
have tickets to see sunset. Tide come in round our beach loungers
fun, and Matt build moat to stop tide but if course futile. Fun tho.
It extremely hot tday so got tired and
didn even have prper supper just snack and bintang beer.
Tomorrow is children coming but we dont
know yet who or hw many or wen but shud be fun. We just let them play
the intruments and play with other sftuff e.g. Matts roll of white
paper he bring al the way from home stickking out his rusksack.
Andy going to video.
We has only 2 days left after this plus
the day we go and it al go down quickly – it is very amazing of
andy to get us out here considering it all experimental and lots of
unknowns - it a huge adnveture for us both.
We read that you till have snowing there. Yu shud feel sorry for us cos
you can get warm by putting more layers and lighting fire and
shutting door ad eating hot soup and etc but we cant get cold here
very easily not even at night and it qute offputting.
