It was a rainy night last night and getting up this morning I was surprised to learn no water came out of my shower. Checking the other faucets it became obvious the water supply was cut off. Oh well, no shower today. It was still reasonably early so I planned to visit Internet Outpost in Kuta before contacting Bali Land to check the situation out.
As I was leaving the house, gardener Made showed up and I explained the problem. We actually have a water pump so he told me he’d check it out.
I met up with Ika who works at I/O and we had a juice at Taman Sari before conducting some interviews with locals around the Sari Club bombing site for a couple of hours. Just talking to these people helps me understand the panic, sense of helplessness and anger they felt and still feel today.
Typing up some items in I/O and getting into e-mail the air con felt good after the heat outside in the street. The internet cafe was less busy than usual for that time of day and I was hoping to spend a few hours there. Suddenly the power went out and I was told it wouldn’t be restored till 5pm.

Heading back to Seminyak I swung by the house to re-check the water situation and it was back on! Awesome, now I can take a quick shower. Made has been Johnny on the spot so far.
Presently at Global Extreme and there are no smokers in here yet….hooray!!!
