Nusa Dua and the Ipanema Man
18.04.2008 - 26.04.2008 33 °C
Nusa Dua beach is in the south east. They have 3 beaches open for public. We went to the one near Club Med. The taxi driver had some hard time finding the turning. He had to stop and ask for direction.
Balinese thinks the mountain belongs to God, and the sea belings to the death. So hardly any Balinese will live by the sea.
We arrived at 11am or so. I don’t know if this place is run by a hotel, they have people wearing uniform serving food and drinks and also water sports.
We had some snack. There were 4 pretty drunk, sun burnt young Australians sitting next to us, and one of them was really cheeky. He talked so much and so loud I think the entire beach can hear him. The craziest thing they gonna do is some water sport.
Like everywhere else, you must sign a consent letter that should there any accident, the company will not take any responsibility.
Despite them being drunk, they signed the consent form anyway.
Suddenly, a guy caught my eyes and Alvin quickly took a shot.
We called him the Ipanema man.
After lunch, we walked a little further and found a summer house not far from club med and spent the entire afternoon there.
Around 1pm, a bunch of fishermen parked their boat at the shore and were walking out to sea.
The sun was burning but the wind was cool. This kind of weather that could burn your skin.
Kite flying is also the favorite pass-time of locals.
