Mick and Sue Hillyard from Buenos Aires who we taught with in Spain 2 decades ago were our 1st visitors here in Surabaya! It was great to see them and we were in Bali (Sanur) for the first weekend of their trip (or at least I was but David had an ear infection and couldn't fly) Unfortunately, the weather was not kind, but we had a good time eating, drinking and catching up with news, and they were perfect guests here - entertaining themselves with trips to the market with our maid/cook, and Mt. Bromo with our Indonesian teacher. They were also able to join us in D's birthday bash (fish and chips and a game of pool in the cocktail bar!)before jetting off to Singapore on the next stage of their hols.
David had organised an educational trip for all Y8 & 9 (8 in total) to a shrimp farm (but, don't worry, he did have 2 teaching assistants with him)....while I looked after the Y7s (all 3 of them) with help from the PE teacher and the Mandarin/Art teacher.
So, as D had missed out on the weekend at Sanur and had such a trying time on his school trip, and we had a long weekend (thank goodness for Chinese New Year!)we had to go back to Bali AGAIN - but this time to Canggu - (South West) very quiet area - lovely hotel and.....SUN for one whole day! We visited Kuta (saw the memorial) and Seminyak and Legian on the dull day, and lazed in the hotel gardens and swam in the super surf on the sunny one. David enjoyed a super spa massage and we also visited Tanah Lot - the most famous Hindu temple on the island - to join the hoardes watching the sunset as the waves crashed onto the rocks.
Now it is back to our arduous (not) teaching routine...and I have to find 2 evenings free to take advantage of 2 massage vouchers I won at Christmas! We intend to have time at home this weekend - then off to Malang the following one and Lombok again for the February long weekend!
Hope you are all well and as happy as we are!
