I must admit that these photos hit me with just the slightest degree of regret, but only in the most circumstantial of ways. After looking forward to a visit to the Ubud Market with great anticipation, we ended up buying next to nothing after deciding we’d come back to Ubud after a few days on Gili Trawangan. Better to see what was available on the other island, and also how much money we had left afterwards, first, right? Except… we got a bit stuck on Gili T and lost our shopping day. In the end it probably worked out because we didn’t exactly have a surplus of funds after the trip as it panned out, but there was an item or two I’d had my heart set on that I suppose will just have to wait until the next visit.
that actually has nothing to do with the market; i just happened to see the little tykes playin some footie and never miss an opportunity to reference a moment in wet hot american summer.
To put this day (morning, really) in context, it was our last full day. Wayne’s friend from London (plus his fiancée, her sister, and another friend) were arriving in Ubud as we meandered through the market, and after some tricky Facebook workings we were able to meet up with them for another tour that afternoon. The next day we all set off for Gili Trawangan to commence the Beach Holiday (read: scuba diving!) portion of the trip.
But in an attempt to not bombard with photos in a single post, and because I need to actually get a course design for last term ready to hand in (read: any amount of papers with anything written on them… we’re fairly certain no one actually reads what we’ve been giving them in exchange for salary each month, but it’s still of utmost importance that they get submitted) in order to get my moneyz for last month. So ta for now!
