At 1pm today I rode my bike down Jalan Legian hung a right and parked at the beach on Jalan Pantai Kuta. I wanted to see how many tourists were out. I think things are picking up but are still way down on last year.
As I parked I noticed some local transport that had seen better days.
The Hard Rock Cafe is right next to the beach on Pantai Kuta and is a very popular spot.

Bali has a relaxed atmosphere and most vendors don’t mind spending time chatting and getting to know a customer. Japanese chicks are suckers for the Beach Boy type and spend time in little clusters.
Other beach vendors keep well protected from the elements and work on their patter with each passing tourist.
