Where I stayed
Today we decided to amp up our trip down memory lane, by revisiting a restaurant called Lemongrass (Thai), as well as a couple of other places we remembered from past trips. I will cut to the chase quickly rather than dragging this out by stating that we walked the streets of Seminak for h-o-u-r-s (Bill can correct me on this, but it really did feel like hours) searching for Lemongrass
What followed was more walking, along quiet streets off the main tourist drag. We noticed it was quieter than usual then realized that the power must have gone out because most of the businesses we passed, other than the the odd one supplied with a generator--were still and dark. We popped into an unlit mini mart for something coldish to drink, and Bill mistakenly bought a can of cucumber-flavored tea. We stopped for lunch at Trattoria which was buzzing with power and lots of customers
By the time we limped back to Villa Oga, we had just about an hour before we had to head right back out for our massages at Body Works. Oy vay.
I must say, the entire foot-tramping, exhausting day was worth it, for the massage alone. Although unfortunately we weren't able to have our "treatments" side by side and instead were led to separate rooms, the experience was heavenly: 75 sublime minutes of full body massage (OK, I didn't especially care for getting my chest rubbed, but that part didn't last long) followed by a flower-filled bath. And we caught a cab back to the villa and as such were free to feel rubbery and relaxed without having to deal with sidewalks and traffic and touts.
Dinner was cheese and crackers and more snakeskin fruit. Plus Balinese cakes left in our fridge by the housekeeper. All in all, it was a good day.
