Taxi – Bali airport to legian – 150 000R extra for surfboard
Car/driver - Balian 350 000R
Grand Kumala hotel – 450 000R
Out of Java and into Bali. I had an easy flight, taxi to Legian and settled into the Grand Kumala Hotel.
Later, I walked down the beach for a few beers and ran into Kay and Neil and met a nice Dutch family.
The next day was ‘Job’ day. My friend Harry from Sumbawa had died a few weeks before in a motorbike accident. I sent 1 500 000R to Harry’s wife. The money would help her buy a goat. He left behind four kids.
I organised my visa extension - 705 000R - with Brian through the Kumala hotel. It was to take five days. Sometimes things don’t work out the way they are planned.
I had a haircut for 100 000R and a massage for 50 000R
I collated information on getting to/from Nusa Penida and organised transport to Balian.
Finally, towards sunset I walked down the beach for a walk/beer and ran into Neil, Kay again and Julie, Kay’s friend.
The next day, I was off to Balian and surfing and clean air.
