We are now in Bali! I was quite glad to leave Australia as it rained non-stop in Cairns and we quickyl ran out of things to do. Sam did an open water diving course on the reef and I went an Aboriginal culture park which was terrible! We were shown a few videos and a laser show which was ok, but when it came to the dance show the dancers outnumbered the audience and they made us get on stage and dance with them, which reminded me of butlins and was so embarrassing!
It was quite sad to leave the people we'd met in Australia as we had a lot of fun with them and we are on our again but at least it's not raining here!
We flew from Cairns to Darwin and then from Darwin to Bali, and on the second flihgt managed to get the seats with extra leg room!
Our hotel in Kuta is very nice-we have our own room with air-con and bathroom and get breakfast every morning, plus we're only paying 12 pounds a night for it. Today we had a walk round the town and it reminded me a little bit of being back in South America as everyone is trying to sell us everything under the sun-I can't even count how many sarongs we've had thrown at us! Apparently Kuta is the really touristy bit, but tomorrow we're hping to head up to Ubud which has been described in our guide book as 'The real Bali'-so hopefully it wll be a little calmer. It's very warm today and quite muggy.
