We got Bali by ferry and from Lombok , from the port , we hitchhiked until our host´s place . The first car stopped !! He drove us from the port until Seminyak . He was very friendly . He was the owner of the ferrys , going from Gili to Bali . He asked us , why we didnt get the ferry directly ? We told him , it was so expensive ! First night , we stayed at Peter´s place , in Seminyak  .

Peter was friendly and nice first day . He drove us around Kuta , showing us touristic places . We rented a motorbike and we went to a hindu funeral .

In Bali , they celebrate the funerals . A religious ceremony , hindu style . All the people were sitting down and eating , having tea or coffee . It was an incredible experience ! At night , they were offering to the deads . There were many people ,many families were celebrating at the same time . At night there were people dancing in the ceremony . Ovi and her husband were really nice with us , they provided food and they rented a room for us .

The best thing that we tried in the funeral was luwak coffee . It was so tasty ! Its the second most expensive coffee in the world . Its coming from the animal , with the same name , from the pooh of the animal , who is cautive to make the coffee . Its amazing traveling ! How many new things , you can learn , everyday !

We went back to Seminyak , by  motorbike . We gave back the motorbike . We hitchhiked until , Lulu´s place , our next host . She was living with her son  , Ian , 17 years old . She was very friendly , fun and generous . Her place was a paradise ! We were very tired of traveling and working hard in Australia . So we just got relax ! We spent a week with Lulu and Ian .

We visisted Tanah Lot , the most tourist temple in Bali . Its a temple , which is inside the sea . At sunset , you can see completely , during the day is covered with water ,from the  sea . We did a trick to go inside Tanah Lot . We went with the motorbike in the wrong direction , to the exit . So it means , we got inside for free and we avoid to pay the parking also . We did many times this trick in Thailand and Cambodia , go inside for the exit and nobody is watching ! It was really nice place !! Views are amazing !! But it was full of people !

 We hung out in Kuta Beach , the most touristic place in Bali . Lulu organized a barbecue at her place , with her friends . Most of them were local people and some foreigners . We cooked a Spanish omelette ! We went for a day trip with Lulu and  Ian , to King Palace . We were a few people , we visisted beaches and rice fields .

An interesting thing !! We went for dinner ,  in Kuta Beach . It was a buffet restaurant , 5 AUD . That place included an hour , free drinks , just for foreigners . To local people , not only they couldnt get free drinks , but also they were forcing to pay to go inside  . So we left inmediately !
