The party's over......

The party at Le Zat, the restaurant next door to us, was cancelled. As we ate there (early diners) we watched the clouds building up across the water over Nusa Penida. On the beach, the sound checks were going on, tables were festively set, last minute Christmas decorations were being arranged. As we watched Nusa Penida we could see the rain falling on the island. Spots of sun shone on the green hills sporadically as huge clouds billowed up. The rain started moving toward us.

When I saw the picture below, I thought I looked as if I was pointing out the all too obvious. "Looks like rain tonight folks!"

Lightning crackled across the sky and thunder boomed. We finished our dinner and returned to our villa, sat on the deck and watched the storm's progress.

Next door the sound checks stopped and we didn't hear a peep from that direction for the rest of the evening. There was no peace and quiet however. The "jokin and smokin' boys", sacks of unbridled testosterone, who hang around the parking lot next door apparently spent their life's savings on fireworks. We endured an hour or so of bangs, swooshes and whistles as they shot the cursed, noisy things into the sky. Finally they gave it up, hopped on their bikes and blasted out of there. Good riddance.

All that Madame du Barry soup next door! I wonder what they'll do with it.

  1. Ah, rained out. Well, you could send a little our way. We still need water in the OC but only in gentle little sips on a weekly basis--not big gulps.
