We're fine!

We have received text messages and emails asking whether we're OK, and we are! The messages were the first we had heard of the massive earth quakes in Sumatra that took place a couple of days ago. We've been in Bali for just over a week, so luckily we're well away from it all. Thank you for all your concern, and for keeping us up to date with current affairs! As for the trip, we've been up the Mount Bromo volcano in Java, Lovina in Northern Bali, and now we're in Ubud, which is the cultural (and souvenir) centre of Bali. More to follow soon...

At last you're visting somewhere we've actually been to ourselves!

We particularly liked the countryside in the north, and the local beaches (& fishermen) on the west. We ignored advice to skip a visit to Kuta .... we shouldn't have; it's like Blackpool on a bad day!

Just caught up with your blog from the last 5 weeks and have enjoyed your vivid descriptions of orangutan chases and fetid bus journeys. Like N&C, Bali is the only place we have visited in your recent itinerary and the only tropical experience we have ever had, apart from passionate encounters at Enfield College of Technology in the mid 60s. The most memorable things we did on Bali was coral reef snorkelling and the wayang kulit (shadow puppet) shows. Keep up the good descriptive work and soon we'll be plugging into Sorrel's blog as well - takes our mind off the financial melt down of Northern Rock as our savings dissolve away because the indignity of standing in queues trying to withdraw it is too much to bear.
