For all those wondering (ie, grandmothers), we’ve made it safely to Bali. About 26 hours after leaving home, we found ourselves in the Crowne Plaza @ Changi airport, which was ideal — walked out of customs, and 3 min later were in the hotel lobby. Of course 1 am there is some “awake” time at home, but eventually we all managed to sleep for at least a few hours. Had a nice swim, some food, and then got onto flight for Bali. There’s a huge ASEAN summit here, so took quite awhile, maybe a couple of whiles, but finally got through immigration and met Jesse, who was waiting to drive us to this slightly-funky (but nice) house outside Ubud. Now listening to resounding chorus of geckoes, frogs, and other mysterious sounds punctuated by the rocking of the ceiling fan slightly loose.
Ok, I can barely string 2 more words together, it’s only about 8:00 pm here, but Max is long asleep and I am feeling jealous!
