Arrived in Lombok after a very long ferry journey. like 4 hours or something. it's only 23km! i can cycle that in i don't 30mins!!!
anyway, sengiggi is a lazy town but lovely. beaches are lush here. much quiter and cheap. staying in a homestay with breaky for a fiver a night. very lovely family and endless supply of kopi (coffee). Martin one of the fam, is teaching me indonesian. he keeps laughing. i want to tell him how comedy his accent is when he speaks english lol. met some brits. first ones i've met so far! they knew things like where York is. and i could speak at a normal pace again.
broke a few rules though - went on back of motorbike with random lone local male twice. i trusted my gut instinct. one took me to a temple where the locals were having a ceremony and offered me holy food. we sat and watched sunset trying to communicate. i had this sticky brown sweet stuff wrapped in banana leaves and loads of green dyed bread. and ofcourse rice. always rice.
