Honeymoon in Bali (Part II)

meat lovers, remember this place
Bintang is my name in Indonesian

Kuta beach is a long walk or a short cab ride away from our hotel. The sand brown, a bit grainy, and surprisingly clean even though there were a lot of people. The sea was also clean and the waves were about six to seven feet high. We took surfing lessons which was really fun. The instructors were very helpful so we both were able to balance on our long boards after some time.

We hired a driver (thank you Kitsie!) who was very helpful with planning our itinerary for the day. He suggested we watch a Balinese show which we found weird because there were some Western slapstick incorporated with traditional dances. We were went Ubud and walked around the Monkey Forest where monkeys were free to roam around. Our driver insisted us to try out babi guling, their version of roasted pig, which is served with some spicy sauce and crispy pork (?) on rice which is best eaten with Coke or beer. We also went to Bali Green School (which deserves its own entry). Of course, a honeymoon wouldn't be complete without the prerequisite sunset viewing which we did in Tanah Lot, one of the known temples in Bali. Dinner was on a cliff overlooking the sea. 

I loved every moment of our honeymoon. Exploring new places are best done with the people you love.
