I sat by the ocean

Sun, sand and surf

sunny 33 °C

Had breakfeast at hotel this morning. Not to sure about this place. Rooms are good, service good, location good but... seems that certain guests get the rockstar treatment and there is the rest of us. Seems to be those of Belgian decent. There was a table reserved in the breakfast room for some weird reason. Then an elderly couple faked tanned to the max with matching receding hairlines strolled in and took centre stage. The owner shuffled in as quick as possible to greet them. Maybe in Belgium they are something but in Bali... breakfeast ok.
Today we are planning on spending it at the beach. We are going to find a shady spot hire some lounge chairs and relax. Jen has to drop some dresses of to Sarina to be altered later.
Found a good spot on the beach near the markets called Bennos. Usually you have to pay for lounges, however, with this place if you buy drinks lounges are free. Found our spot. Kicked back for the next few hours and enjoyed the sun, water, drinks and some food. This is the hottest part of the day and with a cool breeze we were in paradise. This is living. Ahhh the serenity.
Dragged our relaxed asses off the beach and dropped jens stuff in with Sarina. We will see her Wednesday. Walked back to hotel, still very hot today, for a break before we go out later.
The sun had gone down and it was a lot cooler so we ventured out to the Sanur Night Market where the local day markets turn into a food market. Lots of local foods to try. Now i had checked this location online as well as with locals and thought i had it sussed. Could i find this place. NO! Jen and i wandered around where i thought it was, couldn't find it. Decided to stop at a bar and have a drink. Asked the girl at the bar where the night markets are. Just around the corner. What the... Just around the corner and there they were. Finally! At last i get to have my authentic satay sticks. Let me tell you they were worth the wait. Now we have found this place we will be back again. Jen is so cool for putting up with my weirdness.
Tomorrow we are going into Kuta. Need to see this place to make our own judgement. End of another great day.
