Our driver picked us up from Lovina and drove us all the way around the top of the island via Amed to Padang Bai, one of my favourite spots. The Puri Rai hotel where I had meant to stay was full and two other hotels we tried weren't quite what we wanted. Anyway, Nick is suffering a bit from the heat; so perhaps we should head back to the hills (although I absolutely love the heat and the humidity!)
Never mind! We jumped back in the car and told the driver to take us straight through to Ubud where we are now checked into the Pradha which is just down Jalan Kajeng from my old "home", the Arjana Bungalows.
Arjana Bungalows will have two vacant rooms tomorrow so perhaps we will move there. Nick needs television - the more wide-screen, the better - as he wants to watch his favourite football team but maybe he can tear himself away from it long enough to enjoy the peace and quiet of the Arjana Bungalows high above Ubud amongst the ricefields.
