We just came back from six days at the nearby island of Lembongan, Katrinka's birthday getaway a thirty minute boat ride from here. No cars. Motor scooters and electric carts and small trucks for moving people and things. Lot of boats. More expensive than Bali proper cause everything has to be boated in. Kayaked for miles in the waves and waveless. Strenuous. Amazing to me that a body can keep going like that for hours. Water temperature was sometimes awfully warm in the shallower parts, seemed warmer than same time of year two years ago. It wasn't particularly hot either, lot of clouds. More tomorrow.
