Where I stayed
Lombok was refreshing after teh hectic, fast pasted, hawker-filled lifestyle that is Bali, Kuta. we took an 5 hour ferry to Lombok, a neighboring island to bali and found a really nice hotel to stay at for like $25 per night. we surfed the first day at teh famous lombok break; Grupoc (sp). unfortunately most of the time we were there it was windy. we rented motorcycles for $4 a day and explored the southern side of lombok on some crazy dirt/paved roads through small villages. defintely a destination worth spending more time at....however the ferry ride back was brutal, it would prob be worth flying into lombok. we arrived in singapore at 1am this morning and are planning on seeing the singapore zoo, which supposed to be pretty good. don't think we'll spend much time here though, maybe 2 nights. hopefully the video of murray riding with an old indonesian lady will upload. good times.
