Hello everyone from Kuta, on the island of Lombok!

I am in a place so small I can't even find it on the map of Lombok! It's a little town called Kuta which is just one street running alongside a beautiful beach. We came here because the ferries back to Bali have all been cancelled for a few days, so we got stuck! We're happy we did though because it's lovely here.

Today I'm going to the beach with my friend Carolyn, and a guy named Rol, who is from here, is going to teach us how to surf! I'm really excited! I'm also a bit scared, because I'm terrified of the ocean. I know it's silly to be afraid though, there are no sharks here. We're going to pay Rol about two hundred thousand Rupiahs to teach us, which is about twenty dollars.

If I manage to stand up on the surfboard I'll post a picture later. Or, if I keep falling off the board instead, I'll just post a picture of that! :)

Wish me luck!

I did it! I surfed! It was really difficult and I have a lot to learn still, but I managed to stand up on a surfboard and surf a wave!!! It felt awesome and I want to do it again! Check out the pictures I added as proof :)
