... 14th May - the last 'full' day. The following day we were flying home. A few hangovers around this morning. Some had gone clubbing, others had just overdone the Bintang. Jackie and me? We were fine - *lol* Think we were the only ones that hadn't over-indulged the whole holiday. Certainly not enough to suffer the following day, have to spend virtually all day in bed (well, not because of over-indulgence at least) or even have to be put to bed! No plans for anything today, other than a BBQ at Matt and Anie's in the evening. The 'oldies' were around all morning, the younger members didn't appear until the afternoon, still looking rather the worse for wear. Anie asked f we'd like to visit Uluwatu to watch some traditional Balinese dancing. Jackie had seen it before. She was keen that I should see and it was the sort of thing I wanted to see so, at the designated time our little driver and car, from the previous day, came and whisked us away. This time Mick and Lynn, long time friends of Jackie, came with us.
A beautiful evening, in every way. We'd been warned about the 'naughty' monkeys and Mick and I were advised to take our specs off while passing them or risk losing them. Made things a bit difficult to see so I gave Jackie the camera. She took some brilliant photos.
Wonderful sunset, only the 2nd proper one we'd seen since arriving in Indonesia. Unfortunately the view of this one was spoilt by the electric supply (one complaint I had on occasion when there was something really worthwhile to photograph, spoilt by the electric supply - *lol*)
The highlight of the evening - the Kecak dance.
Once again, it was a while before I remembered I could take video clips and, once again, something is better than nothing. I took a few clips and melded them together to put in one video ...
The dance lasted around an hour but we'd been away for around 3 hours when we returned for the BBQ. The food was wonderful, the atmosphere not, as it had continued to be when we were all together. Jackie and I ate our meal and left to spend the rest of the evening on our own but were looking forward to having brunch with Mick and Lynn the following day (arranged earlier in the day) while the younger element went off to the water park before we left for home.
Back to the present ... General domestic duties yesterday. Boring! I've also photographed the cards made at the Glitterpot on Friday so they will be added to the blog in due course. Think I'll finish the holiday blogging first though .... just one more day to go (or is there?) *wink*
Thanks for dropping by .....
