"Sir, you must come with us. Customs. We check bag."
"Not needed! No thank you! I carry bag!"
"Customs, we clear you customs mam."
"We just came through customs."
"Oh. Porter. We carry your bags mam."
"No thank you"
"Oh. Nice glasses sir. I try?"
"Sure, you like aviaters?"
"Oh very nice. Very nice. Thank you sir"
"Uhm, no, those are my glasses."
You need to have a fairly good sense of humor when traveling in a foreign country....they were all very good natured about it shared a laugh with us as they realized we were on to their game and wished us a happy journey.
The villa is literally the garden of Eden. Words really cannot describe it properly, but trust me when I say that it truly is breath-taking. Koi fish in the ponds, water lilies, Frangipani tress, Buddha statues. Paradise. The picture at the top of this post? That is a frangipani blossom....and yah, I took it. I know, I know, I rock. What can I say? My awesomeness followed me all the way to bali.
Last night we were invited to our neighbours house for a tradtional Balinese family dinner. AMAZING! Stay tuned for a full blog entry on that alone.
This morning we are off to the beach for the first time as we had been lying low for a couple days climatizing and coping with some mild jet lag. We are going to Patti and Randy's faveorite Warang, a family run food hut. Truly the best food to be found in Bali. Breakfast will be followed by a walk on the beach before it gets to hot to be on the sand. 31 degrees yesterday!
More pictures and stories will follow soon! Of I go to do some yoga with Ryan.
