Sanur first full day

Jens blast from the past

sunny 32 °C

First full day in Sanur. Had a good nights sleep. We have not got breakfeast as part of our room here so we went to a place down the road called The Owl. Had a hearty breakfeast there. Then time to get a few domestics done. Havent washed any clothes since we have been here. There are a few stinky items we need cleaned. Went down road to local laundry place and drop stuff off. The laundry place is down a little alley. The laundry lady was there and as she took the clothes bag she reached around and rubbed my back "massage?" "Just the laundry today thanks".
Jen is wanting to have some clothes made while we are here so we are heading out to find a tailor. 30 years ago when jen last came to bali she went to a tailor called Sarina who was at the beach markets. Today jen found that tailor! What a character she is. She didn't remember jen, however, she remembered jens aunty pam. Jen wanted some work tops made. She was very helpful and sorted jen with her work tops as well as skirts and a couple of other tops. Great customer service and her prices are crazy low. Will pick up tops in a few days.
On the way we stopped off at local dvd store. Jens dad asked us to get him some dvds when were here. $1 each, however, if you buy 10 you get 3 free. Got him a collection of new releases. He will be stoked. By now the heat of the day has set in so it is time to go back to hotel have a swim and a couple of bintangs. As you do.
Noticed that the hotel we are staying in is full of old people. Some very old people. We are the youngest people i have seen here. This is not a bad thing as it is very very quiet here. Just an observation. The main age of most tourists in Sanur would be over 60 and European. Not a bad thing just another observation.
Went out for late lunch at Little Bird Warung. This is a reggae themed warung within 2 minutes of hotel serving Indonesian food. Cool vibe and very tasty food. I had a sate dish, surprise, and jen a vege goreng. A must if you visit Sanur.
Not much to report on for rest of the day. Took it easy with another swim then went for a walk around town in the evening. Had a light meal then turned in for the night.
