Time for a Holiday....

Sanur Beach, Bali

sunny 33 °C

Sanur beach, on the East coast of Bali, was a nice place to spend a few days relaxing. Big beach, comfortable room, great swimming pool, buffet breakfast, sports bar, dinner on the beach, we were happy. The beach went on for miles, and we walked the whole length a couple of times, watching the kite surfers carefully avoiding the fishermen in their funny hard hats that looked like old fashioned crash helmets. I am guessing these served to stop the wind blowing them off while they stood in the sea trying to catch their fish. Looked funny though...

My main gripe with this place was all the damn touts. As soon as we left the hotel ‘you want massage’, ‘you buy something’, ‘you lookie lookie in my shop’, ‘you need transport’ driving me BONKERS! I lost my rag a few times, couldn’t help it. Think I am ready to leave Asia now.. Or so I thought. A brief visit to the night market, the sights and smells, the fresh street food. Our favourite dish that we first discovered as part of a sampling menu was gado-gado, a spicy salad with satay sauce. Food not only for the stomach but also for the soul. Man, I am gonna miss Asia.....
