|From Kuta Beach Bali|
We slept in this morning but was our phone rang and it was a timeshare person promising us a free vacation to come and listen to a sales pitch and a free breakfast. We thought it might be nice, so we decided to take her up on the offer. The cool thing about it was that when we got there, we told the new lady that we already owned a timeshare and didn't want another one. She let us off the hook and let us go to eat and then we left with our free week within 45 minutes which we'll probably use for a free week on Boracey Island in the Philippines.
Jamie really likes to get a Hard Rock Cafe t-shirt from everywhere we go if they have one, so we headed over to the famous Kuta Beach for lunch. I ordered a good old American burger and Jamie had a fried chicken salad and we thoroughly enjoyed every bite. We each bought a couple of cool shirts and then headed right across the street to Kuta Beach. Check out the pictures HERE.
Afterward, our driver took us by where the terrorists attacks were on Kuta Beach back in 2002. 187 people from many different countries (mostly Australians) died that day. We also saw the spot of the bombing in 2005 in Jimbaran Beach. They say that tourism has just now started to get back to normal, but that many Australians still won't come to Bali.
Great day overall. Jamie is about to go to a 3 hour spa treatment. Great deals here and is getting a 3 hour massage, peppermint body scrub, and a creme hair bath treatment. I don't know what any of this really is, but it sounds nice for her. All that for only $73 plus they come and pick you up and take you back.
We leave tomorrow morning for our Noon flight back to Shenzhen via Bangkok. Has been a great trip.
