Where I stayed
Yellow Flower Guesthouse
We arrived in Kuta on Wednesday, found one of the last rooms in town (although there are only a few tourists there are also only a few hotels) and checked out the beach in town. Not bad - pretty white course sand but the waters are a little shallow to swim in
The four days blended into each other as we got into a routine of beach, beach, beach, happy hour beers (finally found reasonably priced beer), dinner and crib (Garry has finally taught Wendy to play crib...she's kicking his ass). FYI you can't find a cribbage board anywhere in Indonesia.
Currently back in Senggigi for a night before heading to Gili Meno. Opted to stay in a different hotel this time as the previous Senggigi hotel had, in addition to the giant spiders and cockroaches, our newest annoyance...scorpions! And that place was more than twice the price of our new place!
Today Garry got his first haircut in Indonesia - he paid $2CDN and got ripped off! It's terrible. This will be his last haircut - he figures he can do a better job himself - but you can be the judge of that.
Oh yeah - and when we tell people we are from Canada, they always say how much they love that song by the young girl from Canada....Justin Bieber...ha, ha, ha. They are always very surprised when we tell them that's a boy.
