Doing well in Bali

Hey folks! Sorry I’ve been out of touch for awhile. Let me give you a quick recap of what I’ve been doing in the last week.

Marcel and Jose are wonderful – since in Bali they have taken good care of me. They offered me their home as a homebase as I take my weekend/week long trips to explore Indo. Thanks guys! Did I mention they have the cutest baby ever! Her name is Noami (4 months) – future heartbreaker for sure (check out my pics and see for yourself). They also have three dogs – two goldens and one laborador. They remind me of my dog Koa – I miss her!

Thanks to Marcel – I experience my first Balinese massage. OMG! I didn’t know that my bones can be popped in so many places…lol. But it felt really good. The massage went for an hour and a half – full front and back, from head to toe. Total Price 50,000 Rp ($5)

Marcel and Jose took me out to several local eats. One was a “hole in the wall” spot with no name – definitely a local spot. The place was packed! We ordered up some chicken/lamb sate, sweet rice and lamb soup. All very good! (Josh you missed out on this one). One night, we ordered McDonalds. Yes, you heard me right – McDonalds. Let me explain (Aaron this is for you) : Marcel and I got home late and Noami was in such a deep sleep that it would have been a shame to wake her up. So we decided to order in – we choose McDonalds. The cheeseburger and fries don’t taste the same compared to back home. The cool thing was that they had delivery service! All the American chains (KFC, Burger King, etc…) will deliver!

I finally finished my “World Without End” book! Yay! I’m starting a new book called “The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari”…

I got an email from my friend Camille a few days ago. Camille is the ultimate solo traveler – you name the country, she has probably been there. She emailed saying that she’ll be in Indo 9/21 – sucks because that’s the day I leave Indo for Thailand 🙁  We will both try to meet up in Cambodia or Vietnam next month. I’m crossing my fingers.

I’m currently in Yogyakarta (aka Jogja) – writting this blog. I left Bali yesterday and will be in Jogja for three days. I’ll give you the scoop on my next blog.

    Yup, I miss the fast-food deliveries. It was just like that in Bahrain. Now about that massage, damnnnn $5. That would probably be a weekly thing for me at that price and a daily thing for Iris. Well keep the fun going and keep us informed. And don’t forget we all miss you dearly….
