We just had the best day today! While all you poor Australians were preparing for school, I was swimming in one of the most divine pools you could ever find – it was beautiful. Richard felt a bit sick after we finished swimming but he felt O.K. by tonight so we went to see a movie at the Casa Luna. It was Free Willy 2 which wasn’t too bad but not excellent. We are leaving Ubud on Wednesday.
Today we walked around Ubud and did last-minute type things as we are leaving for Padangbai in two days. We went to the post office and the Wartel office and other places. The funniest thing happened this afternoon – we were about to turn up the lane-way to get to our losmen when a motorcycle came and wanted to get into the laneway. R was going first and didn’t see the bike so he went into the laneway with the bike after him. The laneway is very small so he couldn’t go to either side. When he realised he was being chased he started running and screaming and waving his arms! It looked so funny! Oh well, I guess you had to be there.
A bit of a boring day today. Richard had his heart set on an Indonesian “kris” or sword so we traipsed through countless shops trying to find one for him, Up and down those @*!!:@ streets that go /`_/`_/`. Geez! If there’s one thing I won’t miss about Ubud, it’s the streets! We watched another movie tonight. It was called Gold Diggers and it starred Christina Ricci and Anna Chlumpsky. It was V. exciting! Off to Padangbai tomorrow!
