Last night we took a drive about 20 minutes from where we are staying to go have dinner on the beach with our friends from Tembagapura. It was beautiful!

While in Bali, you can get a driver to drive you anywhere you want all day for a very low price. The more you get him to drive you around, the cheaper the price gets. So one night after we were done eating at a restaurant, Wayan gave us a ride home. That's when the love affair began with his car. :D All week now, we have been chauffeured around in the most decked out car in Bali! I know you are jealous!! :D
When we were in Singapore, the kids and Chris discovered they loved to have their feet eaten by fish! In Bali, there is a fish spa on every corner. So once again they all submerged their feet in the fish tanks and enjoyed some fish therapy. I do not partake in this, my feet are too ticklish!

Here is Chris with his good friend, or as they say in Australia, "Mate", and the kids. Chris and Mick work together. They like to make fun of each others countries. Two pm everyday starts the debate on whose country is better.... Well duh! We all know that the USA is the greatest! :D

A friend of ours found this little number up the street from us and came and got Chris to take care of it. We were not sure if it was poisonous or not, so Chris took it across the street and asked some worker guys if it was. The all took a step back and said HATI-HATI!! We took that as a "YES"!
Chris was going to chuck it over the fence, but because we have the "HoChiMin" trail behind our house, I told him it would be better if we buried it. Better to be safe than to have someone step on it. And because of our snake training from watching all those Discovery snake shows, snakes are still venomous after they are dead!
It is also very much uncommon to find snakes up this high. It is too cold for them, and there is no food for them up here. If a snake is found up here, it is usually because they hitched a ride up on one of the supply trucks. It is the first that I have seen in over a year of living here. Hopefully it will be my last!!! :)
Still very much disliking snakes,
