Sunset On Uluwatu

Sunset On Uluwatu

After relaxing in the Gilies, we have one last day to spend in Bali. With our favorite driver, Putra, we visit the south part of Bali.

As we drive up to Uluwatu Temple, there are bus loads of tourists with the same idea of seeing the sunset from the cliffs. As everyone is snapping pictures of the sunset, the innocent looking monkeys start to grab things off the tourists. The tourist who just got his glasses or cap stolen tries to get his stuff back, but finds it impossible. Luckily, a local selling peanuts is conveniently there to help. With a single bag toss of goodies to the monkey, the monkey instantly releases the stolen item. Now the tourist is so thankful and leaves a big tip to his savior, not knowing the monkeys are actually trained to do this.

One monkey almost gets Ben’s cap. If you happen to know our friend, Ben, you would also know the rest of this story. Let’s just say it is a good thing we are there to save one monkey’s life.

For dinner, we go to Denpasar to try out some delicious fried chicken. The place if packed with locals and it turns out to be some finger linking good. After that, we make a stop at a duck restaurant for a second round of dinner. The duck tortilla, duck pizza, and other duck deliciousness.

While in Kuta, MuiMui and I find a spa package that includes ear wax candling and an hour massage. The experience turns out to be painless and fun. We are not sure if it really removed any wax.
