17:07 I met wayan again this morning and we went out for a drive around the rice fields etc, once again it's a cloudy day so I have slightly disappointing pictures. We went to a couple of places and drove more.

I had tried to arrange to see Nami again at lunch but we missed each other. Had lunch at Ibu Oka 2 where I had roast sucking pig with amazing crackling. Whilst we had lunch, around 3pm, the sun came started to come out and stayed out for the rest of the afternoon, it's a shame it came so late because photos could be better.
Wayan took my to where Ketut Liyer lives (anyone who read/saw eat, pray, love will know this name. We went in and I saw him doing a reading for someone, his fixed cost is 250,000 per session of around 20mins, which is about 18, so being such a celebrity he has quite a lot of money with these rates! To see him you actually take a number and wait your turn! Where he lives is just down the road from where I'm actually staying.

After we came to Sawah indah just for a look, which is a really pretty little restaurant with grass roofed seating areas next to big ponds of fish, set right in amongst the rice terraces.
Here you can fish in the ponds for your dinner.

Today is the black moon day and wayan suggests another dancing/singing performance tonight as it's a special occasion, ok so it's the new moon every month but still, not a nightly performance.
I said I'd try and get up to see Nami but I'm not sure I'll get a chance now this evening and I'm leaving tomorrow I think for Lombok.
