A Change of Pace

Awake. Eat. Read. Swim. Sit in the sun. Read. Go into town. Eat. Sleep. Repeat.

Now that’s more like it. This is definitely a welcomed change of pace for this Jakartan. My biggest ambition for the day has been to drive anywhere. The house we’re staying in is situated right on the splendid rice fields just outside of Ubud. The only sounds at night are that of the crickets, frogs, and the occasional falling coconut that’ll scare the crap outta you at 4am (which you can then crack open and sip on at breakfast).

Our travels have extended all the way to the other side of Ubud (10 minute drive), as we’re not yet in the restless mood that usually drives me to explore the entire island with my shoebox-sized rental car. I’m staying off the motorcycles after my Superman impersonation last summer when I hit another bike head on.

For now, this is it. This is just what the doctor(s) ordered. More to come.
