Merry Christmas from Bali!!!
Instead of snow we have rain and instead of reindeer we have BIG red ants and instead of elf’s we have toads and instead of candy canes we have manggis fruit and its all amazing and I love it.
EVERYWHERE!!! Monkeys are quite possibly the creepiest of animals I have encountered thus far. I mean, look at their hands!!! One of the monkeys tried to grab my leg while taking his photo and literally chased me out of the monkey forest. I do NOT want a monkey to touch me. They are GROSS. They do however have little mohawks which makes them party animals in my eyes…
Today something terrible happened: I woke up and realized I looked like a dirty nasty western traveller. Totally unacceptable.
I decided to take a trip to the local Thai hair salon. I would’ve done my hair myself but I have no water pressure. I arrived at the salon, had a nice shampoo and was THEN informed (in Thai) that they only do straight hair. Also unacceptable.
I decided to take matters into my own hands and do my hair myself. The lady in charge watched from a distance, decided she could tackle the task at hand and after a quick lesson finished the job beautifully. I feel like a real girl again. I think I’ll make a habit of this as I’ve seemed to make more friends since…..
