Time has certainly come to a standstill over here. We haven't really done a lot since Christmas Day. Biggest decision each day is where to lunch and dinner. We did get a driver for the day and headed up through Klangkang (don't have my map to check) onto Sideman, stopping on the way to buy some fresh pineapple from a stall on the side of the road and ended up getting a tour through their garden, which happened to grow snake fruit, jack fruit, papaya, mango, durian, bananas and pineapple. The pineapple was delicious and the family were very friendly. A wonderful experience! We then headed to Ujung Water Palace. We were there for about an hour wandering around. We were going to stop in candi dasa for lunch but our driver said that Padang bai was better. We ended up at blue lagoon for lunch instead. Very touristy. The food was pretty good and the bintang was cold but the water was very dirty. I am more of a pool person than a beach person so hence I didn't go in. Hubby went in but said it was very rocky, so I was pretty happy with my decision. We were there for about an hour before heading back to Sanur. Was a really enjoyable drive all up.
We have hired bikes today and have ridden down as far as tities Warung for lunch. The food was awesome. Very authentic flavours and so very cheap. Back at pool now for a bit of a rest and cool off before heading out to Mona Lisa tonight for dinner with friends.
The weather here has been fantastic. Little bit of rain some afternoons but nothing to stop us from doing anything.
Not sure if I will get another report done before we head home but will follow up with a jbr when we get back.
