On my final day at Kumara Sakti I wrote: I’m sitting here on my terrace in Ubud looking out at the emerald green rice fields. Watching the rice farmer walking by in the distance. Listening to the hollow tinker of the
rice chime as it moves in the breeze to scare the birds away. The little squirrels are scampering up and down the trees and branches. Every now and again there is a crash as one goes tumbling to the ground metres below, only to reappear minutes later on the climb to the top again. The cycle of life, so far removed from my own. I feel alive here. I have no future. I have no past. I'm in my life, living it day by day.
Brent had a wonderful time on Bunaken Island and had 14 dives in 5 days. He's especially proud of himself because he can now stay down 70 minutes and still have air left and he's been to 27 metres. He saw heaps of fabulous fish, sea horses, turtles, sharks so was pretty wrapped with his week.
Since being back, we are really noticing the temperature here, we are literally melting! It's so hot and humid even the locals are feeling it. You can be standing making a coffee, brushing your teeth or just sitting and you feel the droplets of sweat running down your back. My armpits feel like lakes and I'm continually mopping my face. Sounds gross doesn't it! Apparently it gets hotter here in October and then the rains start November/December.
