I can't believe I've been here for three weeks! Today I ran some errands, wrapped up some loose ends. Had a nice lunch overlooking some rice patties...and paid one last visit to the Monkey Forest. But maybe I'll come back to Ubud after my week in Lovina and week in Kuta. After all, I did renew my visa for 30 more days - maybe I'll use them? Who knows?
Tomorrow I'm off to Lovina on the north side of the island. It's a beach town but very small and with little tourists. I wanted to go there because it's a black sands beach - which is cool, haven't seen one besides in Hawaii - and because it's got a great internationally recognized SCUBA school where I plan to get certified.
The plan is to stay for a week, and then maybe head down to Pura Besakih for the March 19th festival, and then arrive in Kuta on the 20th. Sha, her husband sister and a few more friends are arriving in Kuta from Australia that same day and we'll all hang out for Easter weekend in Kuta. After that, who knows? Maybe I'll use my last two weeks in Indonesia
to bounce up the islands and head toward Thailand island hopping. It might be cheaper, and more fun!, than a flight up to Bangkok directly. I dunno, I'll think about that over the next two weeks.
Enjoy the pictures of the monkeys...I just love them.
