Aquarius Star, Kuta - Tuesday - 12/12/78 - sunny

I woke up at 5 am with the runs but it didn't last long. At 8am a Balinese lady came and gave me a massage. It was really good, but afterwards I was so greasy. She used 3 different oils and it cost 600 rup. Afterwards we sat on the porch and talked to our neighbours from Australia and had egg on toast for breakfast. Jeff lent Brad a board and went down the beach. While I was sitting on the beach, Balinese trying to sell things were around me like flies. You couldn’t get rid of them. They were selling jewellery, clothes, carvings, food, drinks and massages. I bought 2 rings, a chain and necklace for Mum. I then bought a top for Mary and mangos, apples and pineapple pieces. I was getting so mad as I couldn’t get them away from me. After only 2 hours in the sun I was really burnt. We went back to our rooms and had cold showers.

Ann and Jeff from next door asked us if we wanted to go to lunch. We went to this really nice restaurant called Freers restaurant. It has a little winding staircase up to the top where you can eat. You sit on mats on the floor and it is open and nice and cool. Brad had a steak and I had fried rice. We then went shopping to buy presents for friends and family and we could not find anything. If I liked it, it was too expensive. Brad hired a board for 2 days for 2500 rup. While he went for an afternoon surf I started to pack our bag we were sending home. We are only keeping 1 bag between us. We drove to the airport and it cost us 16,000 rup to send 2 bags back to Australia. We then went back and got changed for dinner. We went to Lucas for dinner and both had frog legs and fried rice. The frog legs were really filling and tasty but they looked like frog legs which was a bit off putting. We couldn’t eat the fried rice because it was so spicy. We then had apple pie and ice cream but the apple pie was revolting. We then walked home.
