Journal Entry:
Woke up to some blue skies. Lounged around the room getting organized (I pack differently for flights) and writing in my journal for yesterday (last night I was to tired and just wrote a few notes). Went out and had a huge lunch on the beach. Bali is fantastic - cheap, friendly, and beautiful. The jagged mountains inland are very reminiscent of Moorea (Tahiti), everything is so lush and green, and there are beautiful temples in every hotel, house compound, and even most of the stores and restaurants. I arranged to dive the wreck of the liberty tomorrow and explored Kalibukbuk a little before it started to rain. I tried to use the internet but it was so slow I gave up after fifteen minutes.

Back at the hotel I explored the gardens and temples (there are many) then hung out and had a beer. I tried to make a call to Morocco, but failed. Back at the hotel sat by the pool and had another beer. Set out for diner, and met a group of people (near the pool again) - five Irish, two English, and an American. Ended up having another beer then going with the two English and the American for diner at a vegetarian restaurant - it was excellent, especially the banana pancakes in butterscotch sauce (with ice cream!)
