Bali

The Last Of Asia

rain 30 °C

Hey! We arrived in our little town in Bali, to see everybody dressed up traditionally, and all the women carried baskets on their heads! I never knew anywhere besides Africa that did that… but maybe I just don't pay attention :). (By the way, they were dressed up for some festival which was pretty cool. We didn't get to go though.)We also realized that their isn't much to do in Bali in the rainy season, so all we did was go on a few dives. The dives were beautiful though, and we also did a wreck dive. The crazy diver people, hired the skinniest little women, to carry 2 tanks each on their heads to the dive sites. That's just how they transported them. It made you feel like a bit of a shmuck for just sitting by and watching as those poor women struggled with your stuff… but they said they were fine and didn't want help. :/. Hmm. Another thing, Bali had the best food ever! Mac had rice 3 times a day for a few days there… haha Anyways, Bali was beautiful, and it was a nice way to end off our 5 month tour of Asia.

Can't afford hot water, but at least you've got your sat TV. (And chickens… UGGGGG!!! Every morning!!)

They were also Hindu here, which was different than anywhere else we were in Asia, but they still had their call to prayer every morning…
