Another loooong journey, first 1h ferry from Banyuwangi at the easternmost tip of Java, to Gilimanuk on the westernmost tip of Bali. This was followed by a painful 4h slow bus ride through the winding and narrow roads of Bali to Denpasar. Locals of course smoke perpetually on the bus, so along with the sulphur poisoning from Ijen, I've now also inhaled bucketloads of passive cigarette smoke (Dji Sam Soe!). Final leg was another 45 min bemo ride from Denpasar, finally to Kuta. Stayed at the Waringin Homestay (nice place! though not a true homestay, really just another hotel/ guesthouse).

Jogged along the water all the way to Seminyak, about 25 min. Lotsa (elderly) caucasian women sunbathing topless, and local beach cowboys strutting their stuff.

No, they're not mannequins (unless you're French, in which case they are), but rather live, warm-blooded local juanitas.

I wasn't allowed in. Guess why?
