Hello and welcome back!
This week was not as spectacular as the other ones. Our lifes start to get more normal and adapted to everything now. I start to have a every-day-routine. My week ends with university on wednesdays through fridays and after that we try to see some nice places in Bali.
On friday we had a nice fish BBQ with our landlord Ketut. She made some traditional indonesian food and the boys grilled the fish my roommate got in the morning from the fishmarket. It was a really nice evening because everyone helped cooking and we ate all together.
On saturday I woke up early to go to Ubud and visit a market there. It is an hour drive by scooter and we arrived pretty early because we do not like the tourist crowds that start appearing during noon. The market was really cool and cheap since we got the “morning price”, it is a good place to bargain and get some good deals.
On sunday was fullmoon, we hang out at the beach almost the whole day because now we always rent a chair with umbrella, which is nice because it is good to have some shade in this burning sun. At night we had a little get-together at our house because we decieded to go to a famous “Full Moon Party” here in Bali. It is a party at the beach, in our case Echo Beach in Canggu, which is pretty nice. There is also an option to paint your face, arms or legs with neon colours so you will glow in the moonshine. I did not do it, because I like to sleep right away when I get home in the morning and not spent my time trying to get the paint off.
I discovered a pretty nice Burger place in Seminyak named “Wacko Burger”. It is one of the best burgers I had so far and I can really recommend it! The location is
awesome, next to a ricefield, and the taste is amazing.
Yesterday we went to the zoo close to Denpasar. It was about an hour scooter drive and we got there around noon. The zoo is pretty nice and we get a discount since we study at Udayana University, always remember to take your Udayana University ID with you. We got to pet an elephant named Molly, wallabies and deers which was pretty awesome.
The zoo is pretty with a nice walkpath through it but I think that the cages are too small for the animals and I kinda felt bad. After the zoo we went to Wacko Burgers again because it is that awesome! The rest of the night we spent hanging out at the house and relaxing before school started again today.
This is the last week before midterms and after that is break and half of the semester is already done. I can not believe how time flies. I will let you know what happens next in Bali!
