Day 1 - All's Right With The World

Amid bombings, flu and other issues around, we took off to Denpasar, Bali this afternoon. Everything is still very much running, with the tourism industry up and about; just the occasional masked guy reminding us of the H1N1 virus. At the luggage x-ray scanning counter we were greeted by a sign:

"Warning! Mango insects species xxx poses serious threat to Malaysian mango industry."

We touched down at Ngurah Rai Int'l Airport after 3 hours of flight, and proceed to a dinner of Balinese fare. We thought that the bones of the fried "flying fish" is to be eaten, but a peek at the other tables shows otherwise...Wel, it was quite crunchy and tasty.

After reaching our hotel we took a stroll at Jalan Legian with the pubs and bars. Bali's quite a slepy town, a lot of shops are already closed at about 10p.m.. Jalan Legian was too long, we saved the street for another day :)

The year's at the spring,
And day's at the morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hill-side's dew-pearled;
The lark's on the wing;
The snail's on the thorn;
God's in his Heaven -
All's right with the world!
