|- Slept in and relaxed all morning
- called Mankig (the driver Dianna and I had a couple days ago) to see if he could take me to pick up Nana at the airport later.
- Checked out of hotel and drove to airport (one English girl from the hostel hitched a ride as she was leaving on a flight that afternoon)
- On the way to the airport Mankig was joking about how much he was going to charge me for the ride. I actually am not sure whether he was joking or not. He was saying how he was going to charge me 300,000 rupiah for picking me up and taking me to the airport and driving me back to Sanur. Katy (the girl who hitched the ride) couldn't tell either - whether he was joking or not. I tried explaining that it only costs about 90,000 one way to the airport so there was no way I was paying more than 200,000 for there and back. - -- When he drove me and Dianna around the other day he was so nice and funny but he appeared more grouchy today and seemed to want to rip me off.
- Waited at the arrivals area for a little while and finally saw Nana being wheeled out of the airport like royalty. One porter rolling her out in the airport wheelchair and another carrying her luggage. We hugged and were both excited at she was here. Even though I haven't seen her for about 3 months it felt like no time had passed at all. I think it will feel like that when I go home.
- We drove from the airport back to Sanur and I gave Mankig the name of one of the hotels that was recommended to me. When we found out it wasn't on the beach I asked if he could just drive us to the main street and we would walk along there and look for a different hotel. For some reason he just wanted to drive us to the hotel and drop us off. He said he didn't know what street I was talking about and just insisted we be dropped off in the original place I told him. It was odd that he was so cranky and rude considering how sweet he had been with me and Diana just a couple days ago.
- The place we arrived at seemed okay and we agreed at first just because it didn't seem like we had any other options but looking into the bathroom we were both disgusted by the black stuff caked at the bottom of the bathtub. We agreed that we should go to the main street I was talking about to see what the nicer options were on the beach.
- I told Nana that the Hyatt here is absolutely gorgeous so we drove there and she took one look around and agreed we should stay there for a couple nights.
- We checked into the room and as I looked through my purse I realized I had no idea where my camera was. I then remembered that at the BBQ last night I was using it and didn't remember putting it away at the end of the night. I was so angry at myself and worried that it was gone forever. Forget that its a nice camera, I had photos and videos on the memory card that aren't uploaded to the computer. I can always get a new camera, but those photos and videos are irreplaceable.
- Even though we were both really hungry Nana agreed to go with me back to Big Pineapple so we could search for the missing camera. We took a taxi there and I was both relieved and very surprised to see my camera was still sitting on the big table that we had the BBQ on last night. It's amazing that it could be sitting there all night and day and no one took it. It's nice to know that the people around here are trustworthy.
- We headed back to the hotel and went to an early dinner because we were both starving. We had dinner at the Seafood Grill restaurant near the pool area. The food was delicious- we both had gazpacho and salmon. First really healthy meal I've had in a long time.
- A bit about the Hyatt: it's the biggest hotel in Sanur (I'm not sure how it compares to hotels around Bali but I wouldn't be surprised if it was the largest). There is a huge map of the Hyatt complex because there are three different buildings with rooms (they told us they have over 300 rooms), two pools, a kids club, four restaurants on the site, one restaurant across the street, a gym, a spa, and a big lobby area with a piano bar. The whole Hyatt complex is incredibly gorgeous. They have decorated it so well and walking around we were amazed at how beautiful everything was. Everything is built around nature- There are huge trees, greenery everywhere, flowers, ponds, little statues and fountains. Walking right past the two pools you are directly on the beach. After taking one look at the hotel we decided we were going to spend 2 nights here and not just one.
