|This fish soup looked delicious but contained a small amount of flour for thickening.|
|This fried soy appetizer was served at our table. Tom didn't like it and I don't eat batter fried foods or any soy.|
|Coconut water is served in the coconut with its soft flesh. Not a fan of the liquid neither Tom nor I ordered one.|
As the days quickly dwindle to our departure in three nights, I must admit I've had a little angst about the red eye flight which departs around midnight Saturday (actually Sunday, at 12:05 am).
|Tom's and Egon's lunch consisted of fried rice topped with bits of chicken, a fried egg and a few bite of vegetables.|
|Francoise's grilled fish.|
Searching online I found a few tips that may be helpful from this site. Regardless of tips and suggestions, the reality is, its only a six hour flight. In no time at all, we'll arrive in Sydney, so I keep telling myself.
|Pioni and I shared this platter of boiled crabs, a little tricky to get out of the shells due to their small size but the flavor was good.|
Continuing to think positive thoughts and focusing on the enthusiasm for the arrival in Sydney on Sunday morning with one hotel night in the hotel which is conveniently located across the street from the pier where our ship will await boarding passengers.
|Watermelon, a hearty crop in Bali was served at our table.|
From there, we'll get a good night's sleep and be ready to board the ship for our scheduled time at noon on Monday, October 31st, the day of our four year anniversary, certainly a day to celebrate.
|Thanks Francoise and Egon for hosting our lunch. I asked to take a photo of the bill to post here. It was shocking to see the five person lunch was only IDR 198,000, US $15.22!|
Sure, its quiet and low key for us over these several days but we're doing well, feeling cool and enjoying getting caught up on a number of tasks we weren't able to accomplish over these past many months.
Be patient, dear readers. The action will pick up in only a few days! Take care!

|Typically in rainforests, we've observed insects and birds as more colorful than in less dense areas of vegetation. Tima, our guide to Vuodomo Falls, spotted this caterpillar we easily could have missed. For more details, please click here.|
