4 am. Stupid birds ! I wake up at the noise of what sounds like a whole bunch of roosters that have decided to chorus. Damn roosters – it’s still 2 hours till sunrise. At least the room is colder than the ones in Legian and my throat feels better without the AC running all night. I’m really not keen on getting a cold with all those beautiful divesites out there.
We have some amazing Banana Pancakes for breakfast. While eating we are “interrogated” by Ekas husband who for western standards seems a little nosy when it comes to our plans for the day. But don’t misjudge the people. In Bali you like to know the ones you’re dealing with… to get in touch with us even for the short time of our stay. He helps us out by answering our questions and of course, there is always the chance to place a deal to their inner posse. People know there neighbours here and what they’re offering. Most of the time you don’t have to pay for an intermediary and if so it won’t be more the 10000 IDR (0.69 USD). Which still is a good deal since you are avoiding running around in the heat in search for the best deal.
