Where I stayed
Nothing! I didn crash a moped into a
van or anything herherherherher!
Actually I did.
On the 2nd day of trip....
Didn tell you before cos was keeping it
secret mostly from home cos what they do if I say oh yes just to let
you know I crashed moped into van and not sure if I okay but never
miind tho ay. what they say ay? Oh ok then? No they say argh come
home what shall we do and wring hands and worry in bed at night and
thinking the worse. So not tell except my big sister Louisa (crashed
motorbike when young also wreck marquee in bizarre climbing on
marquee type incident) and Oonagh (she my daughter and been round
world already and done stuff with mopeds not always sensible). I tell
them just in case and also cos they send me nice encouraging messages
saying I not stupid or nothing and etc etc. So make me feel better
and not worry I come home with fewer legs etc and frighten everyone
ANYWAY – it all ok cos
a) I not hurt too bad cos he actually
squash me a bit which serve me right but he do have bruises on leg
but not too bad
b) I not hurt any Balinese people e.g.
children or baby even
c) I not crash into moving traffic
coming other way
d) As Matt say I not swerve and slide
on side which would a been v hurty for our legs n arms etc
e) We wearing crash helmets put on
properly which good seeing a lots of people not wear helmets specialy
children cos there are nt helmets small for them or people wear
n0velty helmet like german soldier or roman or even we saw someone
wearing a horse-riding hat
f) I not crash into line of mopeds next
to van cos doesn even want to contemplate the domino effect damage
type thing happening
g) something else I not even thought of
Anyway – it all ok cos even tho a
bruise was ALL the way down my leg bright purple and then green then
yellow it normal and people do this all the time I tell myself and
not go hopsickle cos might not be good idea. Swim in sea lots good
and warm good too. Make heal quick. Went to doc yesterday he say oh
dear arent we silly and v excited cos most people come in for coughs
and colds and flu and things where he just send them away with
antibiotic. He done examining me and say it will take a very long
weeks to heal but I can do what I want excep maybe not drive moped...
Funny enough moped ok to drive for rest
of trip (altho scraping sound and bit bent) not me do but Matt do it
v good at moped.
Van not so good (or my leg) had to pay
1,000000000000000 rupiahs. Doh.
So I quite clever to not mention moped
arent I cos we had to use it everyday to get around but instead of
saying we got on moped to go to beach I say we went to beach or
Bintang supermarket... But it far-ish to beach or Bintang specially
with hurty leg so had to use it for mostly everything.
For the moped crash on the 2nd
day I wrote 'in the afternoon nothing much happened' so now you know
When I got home course I say to people
this and they say oh dear how terrible and how awful for you which
make me feel sorried for but later on they laugh har har har cos it
quite funny really I spose and make a intresting story. I never
crashed a moped before so I spose it quite adventurous of me.
Go to go now cos must check my pens.
