Kuta is definitely the Daytona Beach area of Bali from what we've heard. We visited the beach, saw the surfer dudes and grabbed an air-conditioned meal in MacDonald's. We've been good about avoiding American fast food, but we are both leery of what is called the "Bali Belly", so we caved. Little did we know that the experience would be far from that of American MacDonald's
We decided to head to the cultural center of Bali - Ubud - which is about an hour and a half inland. We found a great restaurant overlooking the town square and palace and finally started to relax. Sean loved the restrooms because there were goldfish swimming through the fountains adjacent to the facilities.
He also loves the frog and eel hunting that goes on by torchlight each night in the rice paddies surrounding our fantastic hotel (Tegal Sari). I love the bubble bath I took while he watched the hunt.
