BALI!!! day 4

A journal entry from: Indonesia Summer 2006

I'm still having a great time in Bali, although I have an impressive sunburn, after spending a day laying out in the sun being hungover. Yesterday Lorris attempted to teach me how to surf... it's hard! By the end, I think I stood up for half  a second, maybe a full second. We also took his scooter around Kuta (it's very scary riding on the back of a scooter with a bule in busy traffic). I also spent some time walking around Kuta, buying all sorts of neat stuff.

At around midnight I was back at AP, reading by the pool, and ran into a group of about 15 people playing drinking games. I joined in, and had to play catch up pretty quick. I ended up going to bar with them, and had a fun time. Did some more drunken early morning swimming, and woke up hungover.

The group of people I met is a lot of fun. Some are from Wales, Sweden, US, England, Indo, Norway and Canada. I've been hanging out with them, going to the beach, etc.

The other night we went to Jimbaran Bay for the best seafood dinner I've ever had!! We walked around the little restaurants by the beach, and got to choose whatever kind of seafood we wanted from the tanks. They grilled it all up and we had a feast!

My time in Bali is almost up, but in a few days I'm going to the Gili islands with Troy, Jodie and Laura. I've heard a bit about the Gilis... they are  three tiny with great snorkeling and diving. We're flying to Lombok, then taking a boat to Gili Trawangan, the biggest of the 3 islands. I'll only have 4 days there, but I'm sure it'll be great!
