We leave Ende at 3pm, get back to Bajo by 4, head to town looking for Ed - hoping Lauren can book a dive course at Kanawa - but Ed's been taken to Bali after a motorbike crash (our thoughts go out to him for a speedy recovery) and there are no other instructors running courses. We're out of luck and our only chance for a dive course now is in Sanur, Bali. Lauren takes it on the chin and gets us tickets to Denpasar for tomorrow....we cross our fingers and hope there is a dive company we can book with soon, as the bad weather is coming.
 
We stay at Casa Selini, a guest house run by a Greek lady, it has a good feel to it with it's rustic restaurant and cozy room. After a shower we head to The lounge for dinner and music.
Our dinner is great but soon after, the tiredness hits us both and I get cranky...we call it a night and try to catch up on sleep. At 4.17am the speaker outside plays Muslim prayers and wakes us up abruptly......it's so loud it feels like it's in the room. By 4.30 it's over and we're asleep again. For breakfast we order omelettes and pancakes but apparently there are no eggs on the island. The owner says the eggs come by boat so we settle for toast and tea. (What the hell? - I can see chickens across the road!!)
 
We agree a price of 10,000 for a lift to the airport with a beemo driver......after we arrive and pay, the driver demands 50,000! We laugh and start arguing in the carpark....after a minute of dispute we turn and walk away. More jip!! We know the price, we're veterans of the airports runs here don't you know?
We wait an hour for our plane, happy to be leaving for our third stop in Sanur, Bali and another potential stay at Flashbacks.
