On arrival, we settled into the Gubug Bungalows @ 500 000R per room for 11 nights. This is a very pretty hotel with okay rooms with a small patio overlooking gardens and an infinity pool with a view over the ocean and surf in the back ground. It has a pleasant restaurant and bar.
I dropped over to see Ayu ( my Balinese friend) and her family. It was nice to see them and we had a lot of laughs.
Back at the hotel and down at the pool were Steve and Jaimie, whom I met at Balian a few years ago. Then a short while later, along comes Tank from Tasmania. I knew he would be there. Then a few minutes later, Mark and Mandy came over. I met those two in the early eighties in Sri Lanka. Of course, we had a few beers and I joined them at Deki's restaurant for more beers and a chat. Phil was there and later Roice turned up. I don't remember when I met Roice but it was a long time ago in Balian.
I didn't join them for dinner as this was our first family night in Balian.
