bali, indonesia.



so pretty much bali is ridiculous.

we get to the airport and are greeted by some guys who work with macbeth shoes and are graciously letting us stay at their amazing villa right by uluwatu. the guys were saying that this place is kind of a big deal, and then we walked down there and i quickly saw why. the paddle out to the water goes through this epic goonies-ish cave. we of the non-surfing variety watched from above at this amazing overlook complete with a little cafe. it seriously was stupid. places like this don't exist for real. that's how amazing it was.

the next night, after some swimming and shopping in town, we came back and jon, tim, and chad went with one of our hosts named muklis to the west side of the island where there as going to be some more surfing. their excursion involved snakes, giant peeing pigs, more homemade indonesian food than you could shake a stick at, and some epic surf. when they came back from their little trip within a trip, i have never seen them giddier, it was like hearing kid talks about christmas morning, they were just so excited about it. that night we headed back into town and had some dinner and jon played an impromptu set at the hard rock cafe there in kuta. it was good times.

the next day involved more surfing and more awesome food and shopping. jon, tim, and chad were the last 3 out in the water with probably one of the most gorgeous sunsets i've ever seen as their backdrop. they paddled in and said there were bats flying all over in the goonies cave. tim said it was probably his favorite surfing memory ever. a bold claim, but i believe it.

thanks to everyone in bali for being so gracious and amazing. i'm sure we'll be back.
