Thursday at Internet Central

Poppies II has a variety of tourist related businesses including this place acrross from I/O called Gelati. They make some pretty tasty ice cream. The young lady working there has tasted them all naturally and likes this one the best, its kind of like vanilla.

Cock fighting is quite big here in Bali and this fellow was on his way to a fight on Jalan Benesari. For those who like a little rooster humor here’s a e-mail I was recently sent.


The Missing Rooster

A priest in a small rural town was very fond of the ten chickens and one handsome cock rooster he kept in a hen house behind the rectory.

One Saturday night the priest discovered that the cock rooster was missing. At the same time the priest heard rumors of cockfights being held in town.

Shocked and dismayed, he decided to say something during Sunday Mass.

During Mass he asked the congregation, “Who among you will confess to sporting a handsome cock?”




All the men stood up.

“No, no,” he said. “That’s not what I mean. Who among you will confess to having seen a handsome cock?”

All the women stood up.

“Oh, no,” he said. ” That’s not what I mean, either. Who among you will confess to having seen a cock that doesn’t belong to you?”

Half the women stood up.

“Oh Lord,” he said. “Perhaps I should rephrase the question: Has anybody here seen my cock?”

All the choirboys stood up.


Okay visiting the beach briefly today I talked to a couple of vendors, this lady who wanted to massage my milky white body and another guy called Rudy who tried his best to get me to buy his carvings. The beach up by Jalan Melasti is almost devoid of tourists. The sun was blazing today and you could tell the smart people from the dummies by the fact that the smart ones were under a tree.

I’ve been bumping into Paul, our surfing guru who has relocated to Bali and am in Internet Outpost with him, Bill and Susy.

Our businesses cards are being spread around the area on our new card holders and I hope we can entice many travellers and tourists alike to come over to the light.

Bill has just bought a surfboard from Paul and Internet Outpost is turning into a real little travel central with employees like Endah, Ika and Lay keeping us ‘bules’ satisfied.
