A relatively very cold winter in Australia. We had been waiting a long time for our next overseas trip and it always seems so far away but then the next thing you know you are there.
A shuttle bus to the International airport, check in, customs, boarding, flying, Indonesian customs, baggage, a car pick up by Nyoman (200 000R) and check in into the hotel. We are here!
We stayed two nights in Legian, Bali at the Grand Kumala Hotel (375 000R).
We arrived late but in the morning, we cashed money ($1 = 10 510 R), picked up some supplies at the Bintang Supermarket and I had a haircut and a massage.
We spent the day around the pool relaxing and in the afternoon we walked to the beach for the sunset, a few beers and a caught up with long time friend Wal and Desty. A great afternoon and dinner.
The next morning, we set off for Balian. Our driver was Nyoman, who we have employed a number of times. (400 000R)
The old staff at the Grand Kumala had all quit. The receptionist wouldn't tell me why but they all quit on mass.
Indonesia uses meter readings to pay for electricity and water. In addition, they can also pay for electricity as a credit system.
