Steven, our friend from Scotland, rallied up a group of us for a day of water sports. Matthew, Mat (Whales), Sarrah (Jakarta), Julien (France)and Howard (England) all joine in. Myself, not being the "adventurous type" convinced the driver to just take me along for free so I can take pictures of the gang. :D
For $25, the gang parasailed, did this thing they call "fly-fishing" where 2 people laid on there backs on this big raft and got dragged behind a speed boat until they flew up in the air, and then they also were able to bounce around on a "banana boat".
I thought that I would just be spending my day on the beach, while everyone else did the activities; but after talking to the local guys driving the boat, I was able to hang out on the boat with them instead! I had loads of fun hanging out on the speed boat with the workers and it turns out that "Nilu" is a Balinese name and they were very happy that I had this name. Hilarious. From the boat, I was able to take GREAT pics of everyone.
That night we were all beat, so the guys put together a poker tournament while I went and played pool with Sarah and Howard. Pool is different here because the balls are smaller.... Have to get used to that...
