Make like an Australian

View Bali - Lombok 2010 on pythagnz's travel map.

...and head to Kuta Beach.

That's how I'm spending my last couple of days in Bali. Actually, I like it better than Sanur. It has less hawkers and development right on the beach.

I've also checked out a few foot massages and had quite a painful reflexology session. If the foot represents all parts of the body then it appears that I'm a basket case.

I've been accosted by hawkers. They are very persistent. One even dragged me by the arm and was most disgusted when I wouldn't go into her shop. How many pairs of shorts do I need?

I found the local morning market very near to my hotel and got a f ew smiles as I wandered around. It was nice to finally see the local people going about their business instead of the tourist industry. The same place has the night market where there are a few useless items for sale and some very yummy food. I had a bowl of noodles for not much money. This is the kind of place that every Thai town has but I've found them difficult to locate in Indonesia.

Finally I had a beer on Sindu Beach (the local beach to my hotel in Sanur) with Stuart, the guy who operates the travelfish website. That was a pleasant way to finish.

Now I am in Melbourne airport waiting my flight home. Tanned and tired.
