We awoke to the now-familiar sound of torrential rain. A short hop over to the resteraunt and we were gretted with the awesome free breakfast that we would come to rely on over the next few days. As I look back now, I smile at our innocense before we became full blown pancake junkies. It got so bad that every morning we would arrive at the breakfast table, like awful drug zombies, looking for our next big hit of honey pancake.
After brekkie we met again with Roy who looked a lot more friendly in the daylight. We arranged a couple of excursions for teh week, which I will write more about later on.
The main part of the day was taken up by heading into Kuta (via the very lovely hotel pool)
Walking round Kuta was bloody hard work - the scortching heat combined with always having to be on the ball and not get blagged or robbed made for a draining few hours. We managed to see the beach which was cool as it had huge surf and looked amazing. We headed back to the comfort of the hotel via an extremely slow internet cafe for a nice afternoon nap!
THat evening we did what we would do most evenings, sit on the balcony and drink Bintang, the local brew. We were fascinated by the Geckos that are everywhere and the oversized bugs that they ate. Foreign wildlife is really cool. After that it was more dinner and a sleep, strangely we had noodles - again...
