It is difficult to believe that we are on the final leg of our incredible journey through this part of the world. We spent our final night in Perth at the Hopman Cup watching Poland defeat Austraiia in men's and women's singles. Although sad for Australia, we loved being in the midst of a great competition. After a tearful goodbye to the kind and wonderful Davies family in Perth, we flew to Bali. We have been staying at the most beautiful luxury resort on the Indian Ocean in Legian, a suburb of Bali. At Lizzie's suggestion, we traveled to Ubud, an artistic and literary original community on one afternoon. The highlight there was a visit to the Sacred Monkey Sanctuary. We LOVE Bali--green flora everywhere! People are kind. The ocean roars. We ate unbelievable meals--but, of course, we have throughout our trip. Last night, we BOTH had 2 1/2 hour massages with scrubs and an herbal bath.

We are now off to the airport for travel to Singapore where we will spend a couple of days with Max Warburton (another first cousin) and family before heading home.
