Where I stayed
Secret Garden Bungalows
Today was our last day on Nusa Lembongan and since we did not have the motorbike anymore (cause we rented it only for 3 days), we decided to stay at our place and rest and plan for our next part of the trip.
While we were sitting outside on the hammock choosing pictures for our blog, this guy comes up to us advertizing a boat ride (that he would arrange) to Padangbai (our next stop). We have been told to be super careful about this because many times they take your money and there is no boat, or you end up on a public boat that is super sketchy that is full of concrete and no life jackets. This guy would not take no for an answer so finally we told him we had to go get food and that we would call him later (but we already knew the answer)
We also got to hang out on the beach right next to our place. It was cool to just watch the seaweed farmers and the kids playing on the beach. We kept seeing a bunch of kids with two buckets and sprinkling water near the shore and then grabbing something. So we went to ask them and found out that they were catching worms by spraying the water down so that they crawl up. We are not quite sure what they use the worms for but since there were kids doing this every 20 ft. along probably a mile long beach they must be pretty useful/tasty…
We also had to pack and get ready for the next day. We are hoping to be up at 6 am to get on the boat at 8:30 on the beach.
