Day 335… bali1… ok folks… todays shenanigans begin early with a domestic flight to Bali and catching up with awesome travel buddies Chris and Amanda. They are staying in a place called Seminyak – with funky bars, restaurants and shops selling many souvenirs such as masks, puppets, things with Bali’s traditional Batik design everywhere and… for some frankly unknown reason… sooo many carved wooden … thingies! They are virtually everywhere… and every size. Haven’t seen this many since Europe… where one city also had an unusual penchant for wooden phallus. Here however I leap into the pool before we hit the town and see the slinky beachwear, khaki hipsters and hand-made jewellery. Then we take a stroll along the beach to see the view as well as lots of kites… they do love a good kite here. Then we take a look inside a lovely temple here before heading to dinner at an amazing place called HOG WILD… all ribs and incredible food with a hilarious pig theme… pig-casso paintings… pig mona lisa… etc etc. Brilliant
Back at the serviced apartment the guys have, we sit down to watch AAAH, ZOMBIES which is really great, followed by NIGHTCRAWLER… a powerful performance film.
I also checkout a shop that sells exclusively skulls… back to weird morbid stuff at last!
