Travel Diary Day 38
(Travel journal - strange-lands.com/daily/2012/08/19/nusa-lembongan/)

I’ve learned a new skill recently. I can invent ways that I’m definitely going to die why flying. I never used to be scared of flying, but Rachel’s fear is so convincing that I’ve taken on her delusions too.

It didn’t help that when I enquired about a strange noise I could hear to an air hostess today, she looked shocked and said ‘Oh my God!’ In my head I was shouting ‘Don’t do scared face! You’re the last person who should do scared face!’ She must have been new. Air stewards are the ones we look to in order to keep us calm. Her ‘Oh my God!’ = my ‘Holy Sh1t!’

The chauffeur’s sign at the airport said ‘Miss Rachel’ on it. Not bad at all.

I asked a couple of hotel employees if there was a shop nearby where I could buy snacks. They looked at each other and agreed that it was very far, at least 0.5 kilometres, they agreed. I told them if the gods were in my favour I should be able to cover the distance.

One of them set about drawing a map. The other said he could do a better job and started drawing another one. By the end of the map drawing competition I had two detailed sketches and even knew how to get to one of their mother’s house.

The directions boiled down to this: Go straight, turn left, turn right & turn right. It took us 15 minutes to get there and back. I love helpful Indonesians!

We actually fly out tomorrow night. Tomorrow’s entry will be my last in Indonesia. The UK journal will then commence.

Today’s Photo – Nusa Lemgongan beach

We really loved this island. It wasn’t like Bali. It was quiet, relaxed and friendly. The evening I took this I watched the sunset with an oldish Indonesian fisherman who just wanted a chat – not to sell me anything. That’s not a common experience on Bali.

I found Rachel along the beach. She was reading a book. We decided that this was our favourite place in the whole of Bali, right there on that beach, with that sunset. It was lovely.

Beautiful purple tone to this, Jimmy! Love your eye for perspective. I see why you and Rachel love this beach. I do enjoy your stories. Too funny! I don't fly...I'm under the old saying "if God wanted us to fly he'd give us wings". I haven't sprouted feathers yet so no flying. Boat, train or car. Scenic routes only!! Keep up the great work and dialogue. So much fun!! angie from FL
