As our luck continues from the previous time, we only got a room for one night and had to check availability again the next day. “Check tommorow yea, tomorrow. Check. Check.” I have no idea to what kind of principle you can get a room for more than one night, but they always sent us to check tomorrow.
The basic food and the one I can’t get tired of is Nasi Goreng (fried rice), Mee Goreng (fried noodels) and Sate (diced meat on sticks, marinated, seasoned or together with different sauces). They use a lot of coriander, which gives the food a nice flavour. This year I am growing coriander for shore. And it’s a mango season out there, so I had as many mango juices as I could.
Jimbaran is a part of Bali, south of Kuta and the airport, where you come to eat good sea food (snappers, baracudas, prawns, crab, etc.) and hang with the local fisherman. They catch sardines, which they sell at a local market to local people. There is also a fish market in Jimbaran, selling all sorts of fish to different restaurants. A dish of white snapper weighing 1.4 kg, steam rice and other side dishes costs just under 10 EUR and makes two people full. Oh, and I mustn’t forget the lovely sunsets and live music. Balinese men, with rockabilly hair, singing Pretty Woman with some lyrics missing. They were so funny.
