We had a special dinner our last night in Bangkok. We had all our favourites. Spring rolls,Tom Yum Gai, Pad Thai Noodle Chocolate Roti and Mango and sticky rice in a place just off Khao San Road. We had our last foot massage and stayed up pretty late. We saw heaps of people on Khao San Road we couldn't believe it. All the tourists come out late at night when it is cooler. The next day we had to get up at 2:30am to catch our 6:15 am flight to Bali. Nanny wanted us to sleep on the plane so that is why we stayed up late. We did sleep after we had pancakes for breakfast. When we arrived in Bali a driver from the hotel came and picked us up. It was so hot and humid. Much hotter than Bangkok and it poured down rain in the evening.
We are staying in a 2 bedroom apartment. We really like it cause it has a balcony we can sit out on. We got into our swimmers and we all had a swim in both of the pools here. It felt so good because we were all so hot. Tom, Ethan and Poppy all went down and watched footy in the restaurant. The Dragons were playing the Knights. Nanny laid down because she has a bad cold she caught off Poppy.
The next day we got up early and had breakfast and walked into Kuta. We walked along the beach and there were people with surfboards and boogie boards for hire. There were ladies selling jewelry, sarongs and giving massages on the beach. The surf was pretty flat but Poppy told us we could go on a boogie board tomorrow.
Nanny told us the Balinese people put offerings of flowers, rice, incense, and sometime money in a little box made of bamboo in front of their houses and shops every morning. It is suppose to keep away any evil spirits. We also saw some temples on our way into Kuta. Most of the Balinese people our Hindu and they have lots of different gods they pray to. They are very religious like the Thai people but they are Hindu and Thai people are Buddhist.
We spent the day looking around the town. It is very much like Bangkok with the street markets but it is very touristy. Ethan said it reminds him of some of the holiday places in NSW. We had dinner and did some grocery shopping before we headed back to the hotel as we were all still pretty tired from the trip. Auntie Laura and Uncle Matt arrive tomorrow can't wait to see them. We haven't tried any Indonesian food yet maybe tomorrow.
