    Ubud, Bali, Indonesia

    Under construction: the royal cremation tower at Ubud Palace in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia.

    Let’s talk about ceiling fans. Someone was sitting in my usual table at Taman Curry today, so I grabbed the only other spot with a ceiling fan. As I gently pulled down on the cord, the plastic handle at the bottom slid off into my hand, leaving an exposed bit of wire dangling in the air. Seems this fan, which looked just like the other one, had a small on-off switch on the handle, wheras the other one was just a pull-down type cord with no switch. Right when it happened, the waitress told me that the fan was “no working.” I thought that they would make me pay to get it fixed, but after I ate two small meals over a three-hour period of laptop work, they never said anything as I paid my bill.

    Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia

    Would you care for a little traffic jam with that toast? Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia.

    I thought I’d push my luck today on Friday the 13th and hire a taxi to drive me to Denpasar, Bali’s biggest town, to look for a new voltage transformer, as I had ruined mine the day before by leaving it plugged into the wall by itself, which caused it to overheat. The driver asked for $25, but I talked him down to $20. It’s way cheaper to take a bemo, which is a tiny van or truck, but it takes way longer, as it picks up and drops off lots of people. Plus, you have to transfer, and it’s hot, cramped and unreliable. I also knew we might have to visit several shops, and that would be impossible with a bemo.
