Today was shopping day. Though there are shops every 10 feet in Bali, we wanted the more upscale "knock offs" so we took a cab across town. Cheryl and Jenna did the shopping and Marv and I did the following. Our criteria for the best store was how comfortable the seats were and how well the air conditioning worked.
We also got a chance to "walk amongst the people" and see Bali up close. There are a lot of nice people and interesting architecture. I got a chance to see a building renovation happening real time. Fortunately (or maybe unfortunately) for these men, there are no OSHA inspectors in Bali.
Not sure how it happened, but after a couple hours of shopping, it occurred to us that Cheryl and Jenna did not actually buy anything so we celebrated by having a beer.
It was then on to doing what we came here to do and that was to do nothing. So Cheryl, Jenna and I hit the pool while Marv got a massage. Cheryl said she was especially sore from the shopping and wanted one too but they were booked. I guess it will have to wait. Only 19 days left (I love saying that!). They have a great pool on the 4th floor that we all enjoyed. So we celebrated with a beer.
I know what your thinking, "why are you taking a picture instead of holding on?" My answer? "Because I'm an idiot!" Somehow we made it to the beach safely so we celebrated with a beer.
Found a great place called Sand Beach Bar and Grill with bean bag chairs and live music on the beach. It was amazing. We spent the rest of the night walking the streets enjoying Bali. We hit the sack early because we leave bright and early for the Gili Islands tomorrow!
