|Koen and his friend curtis, picked Maria, Jacob and me up at the hostel and we went to picked up the car at around 10.30 and by 11am we were out on the road! getting out of kuta was the worst part and it took us ages!Due to leck of street signs we had to stop fairly often to ask for directions to ubud! AS small town in the centre of bali, where we stoped to check out monkey forrest! It was an amzing sight with lots of monkeys and some remote temples!
After lunch we tried to find our way to amed! we did quite a good job, we only got lost once and by nightfall we were drowing close! We stopped at some random temple where we heard music and went in! we watched a group of hindu man practicing for a festival that was going to take place in june!
After that we moved on to amed, a small village at the east cost! We had dinner at place called warung mama, a friend of koens who lived in the area joined us for a beer! We had a long talk and than organised to stay at mama homestay. What was very cheap for bali and the rooms were very nice and it was directly on the beach! we were drinking some arak and beer witht the owners on the beach and than fall into our beds!
The next morning we went snorkeling. The current wasn very strong and you didn't have a very good view! Maria and where pushed against the cliffs and got a few little cuts. Though we managed to get out of there we decided to stop snorkeling, Koen and Jacob stayed in a little longer!
Than we start to drive back! It was my turn do drive and after a while i was driving a little bit to far on the left due to a passing vehicle, we bummed into a stone and had a flat tire! we changed the tire and jacob drove on suddenly the other tire gave in too and we had no more spare. We took the tire and walked for about a kilometer to garage where we had it fixed. Than we had lunch and fixed the car. on the way back we stopped at another garage to get the second tire fixed!
Than we went to the bus terminal of denpasar to leave koen how was going to java that night! he jumped out of the car at the station and went to buy a ticket and we were gonna meet him after we parked the car! We never saw him again! He just managed to get on the last bus! bon voyage my friend! After a while we figured that he was gone and went back to kuta! we handed in the car and went for sushi, and a few more drinks at sky garden! Jacob and I left a little earlier and had another beer on the way home!
