Firstly, I'd like to tell you that September the 11th is a very very happy day for my family. It is my Mums birthday, and also my sister's one year wedding anniversary. So, no need to be mopey and sad and miserable and remembering one bad day that happened on the other side of the world, for the world has experienced much tragedy, I'm sure every day we could remember some tragedy - an earthquake, a tsunami, a massacre in some war or other, but we don't,  people want to forget bad days, and not have them dragged up year upon year, there really is only so much wallowing in despair that is necessary, do we really have to commemorate a tragedy every year? I think 10 years of remembering this particular tragedy publicly is quite enough. On the other hand a birthday celebration and wedding anniversary is a good reason for a party, so Cheers family, lets remember a great day.  

Last night I got an email from a couchsurfer who was in Bali and about to travel to Java. He basically asked me if I wanted to travel with him. So this morning I sent him my number and we spoke and agreed to meet up in the afternoon for a drink and to see what we thought of each other. 
Donnie picked me and David up from outside McDonalds and we drove further and picked up another 2 guys, before heading to the South coast to watch the sunset. We came to a very smart place that cost 100,000 to get in (although the other guy Glen paid us in and bought us a very expensive drink - me and Dave that is! as we were completely unprepared for this.)
Donnie is basically a pop starhttp://www.reverbnation.com/donnieandthetroy, and so are his 2 younger brothers, one who is lead singer in Supernova (who supported Keane on a recent tour) and the other is lead singer in the band Nidja (who had a track in the Heroes soundtrack). Donnie and The Troy will be coming to Europe this year to promote their band, and I will be spending the next 2 weeks travelling with him through Java, also with David who has also decided to come, and we have some WAY cool things on the plan as it seems that Donnie is rather well connected...We will just have to see how the time pans out really before I let you in on the secrets!

Pics to come!....
