Bali Day 5 - 21 Jan 07

Pak Made couldn't make it again as promised. We came to the conclusion that he didn't want to take us because we refuse to go to places he wanted to take us on the first day (those places he gets commission bringing tourists to). So we chartered another guide - Mas Made - the driver who sent us to Kuta from peninsular Beach resort in Nusa dua the day before. See the similarity in the name 'Made'? Made means - first child. So there are many Mades in Bali - beware! We pay Mas made Rp358K for the 1 day trip - meals excluded - thank God he was available in such a short notice - otherwise our plans are ruined! We first checked out Wina after breakfast adn went to Tanah Lot Temple on board a white Kijang (Indonesian National Car) - Spectecular scenery along the way and definitely breathtaking at the temple - we took dozens of pictures and saw people surfing - this time really surfing with bigger waves unlike in Kuta. We next visited the Taman Ayun temple of Mengwi. There we saw the Mengwi clan having a meeting in progress. Had buffet lunch later at the Mentari Restaurant nearby Lake Bratan - a mountainous lake-view - mountain with 4 spikes and 3 lakes. Passed by a vegetable market on the way and because of the low visibility (fog) we didn't visit the other two lakes. Later we head to Sanur to check in Paneeda View Resort for the next two night. Stopped by at Crystal Divers to choose our equipment for our anticipated snorkeling trip to Tulambem tomorrow - we we greet my very friendly staff at Crystal Divers and they surely made us feel like they've known us for ages. After cheking in - we unpacked and Mas made joined us for a swim at the Resort's pool. Later that night we went to watch the Kecak Dance. Went back to the hotel for dinner and slept early for tomorrow's snorkeling trip.
