Basking in Bali
The weather is especially hot according to the natives. I'd say about 38 degrees. The hotel and pool are lovely. It looks like a fairy garden at night. Robin picked this well. There are little shrines everywhere like the one in the picture above. They are made of palm leaves with rice, fruit or flowers in a palm leaf boat. Every sidewalk has an offering at the entrance to a home, hotel or shop to the god of luck, prosperity, whatever.
The food is stupendous and cheap. These are the first fruits and vegetables we have been served in a restaurant. We got great food on the dive boat.
Tomorrow we leave for Nusa Lembongan to go diving and don't know if we will have internet access, so the blog may be quiet for 3 days.
