Wet Dreams

Holy toledo!¬†Looks like our day dreams in the sun are more like wet dreams in the rain with all the weather we’ve been getting lately.

They don’t call it the wet season for nothing!

It rained three days straight in Bali, and while that was no great cause for alarm for us, I did notice the neighbours acting a little weird, gathering all their animals two-by-two. But basically for us, it meant we had to barricade ourselves into bed with videos and whatever we have in the cupboards, to snack on. And mind you, a grass-weaved placemat is no substitute for a salada biscuit, no matter how much butter you smear on it.

It also meant we had to amuse ourselves in other ways to prevent us from going stir crazy. Thankfully, my sister-in-law Steph, gave me an Impossipuzzle Jigsaw to help us wheedle away the time. Unfortunately for us, it took us less than 6 mins to complete the puzzle. Five minutes and 20 seconds for me to get it out of the box and 40 seconds for Fiona to solve it.

So, it’s back to wet dreams and videos in bed, eating furniture and editing crazy videos of our trip, like this…

Another Bali Gem

We’ve ridden past a restaurant called, Warung D’Sawah, many times before and never really took much notice. Mainly because, all you see from the street, is a tiny dusty carpark, no bigger than a living room. But on this occasion, I decided we’d pull in and investigate it further…

Wow! Another Bali Gem. Nestled at the end of a winding jungle path, the restaurant opens up into a multilayered open aired restaurant, with a lawn the size of a small football field, at the back of the rice paddy cut-through. Seats maybe a hundred, on the grass under the umbrellas, or the open aired stage level, or the undercover section a couple steps up.

And very eco-friendly. I’ve never seen so many frogs in the one place, in all of Bali. And every night, they have Balinese Dancing performed by some very cheeky kids in fantastic costumes.
