  • Jetlag will play such wonderful tricks on the traveler's mind!

    I have been in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia for two nights now. It's nearly 9am and I haven't decided what to do on my last day here! I feel really foolish for planning such a short trip. Maybe "unfortunately broke" is a better way to put it, rather than foolish. As inexpensive as it is to travel in this part of the world... I'm still not made of money.

    The story of my first, very jetlagged morning in Bali is one I'll never forget.

    *I recorded the music you're hearing while at a performance of Wayan Kulit shadowpuppets last night.
