I managed to get a mere 4 hours of sleep before we were up again and ready to start the day. Breakfast was free at our hotel so we went down and had a banana pancake before heading to the beach. We had got to know a local Indonesian surf instructor the day before at the beach so we decided to get a surfing lesson from him at 12pm.

We arrived at the beach and within minutes we ran into our instructor and he was getting us surfboards for the lesson. It’s funny cus we thought since Jordan and I both snowboard on a regular basis surfing would be a breeze, boy were we wrong. The lesson was 2 hours and although both of us were able to stand up on the board a few times, most of the lesson consisted of us falling off the board before we even got half way to standing up.

Overall we had a pretty fun time and after 2 hours we were drained of most of our energy.

After a quick mid-afternoon snack (we eat every couple hours lol) we spent most of the remaining daylight walking through the streets, checking out different shops and stores before heading back to our hotel for a quick nap before heading out to meet our German friend for dinner.

We met Matt (our German friend) for dinner at 8pm at Ocean Beach restaurant and bar and were surprised to find that they had Indonesian military guards there to watch over everything since it was some sort of special occasion and it was going to be busy. Sure enough, by 10pm the place was packed with people and once we were done our meal we decided to head over to the bar/club section to see what was happening over there since a lot of people were starting to head that way after eating too.

Matt(the German)
The bar/club side was just as nice as the bar side with a nice pool and dance floor. I’m not sure what event it was but at 10:30pm they starting giving everyone free drinks which was a nice bonus considering drinks in this place were pretty expensive at close to $5/drink (expensive as far as Asia goes). They offered two different drinks for free, one was a fruity drink that tasted like it had Malibu in it and the other was something like a rum and coke. The funny part was that both tasted terrible by themselves since they were stupidly strong but as we soon found out, they tasted great when you drink from both type of drinks at the same time! Before we knew it, we were telling everyone in the place to get one of each drink and sip them at the same time since most people agreed that they tasted like crap otherwise.

The bad part about drinking the two drinks at the same time is that you get drunk twice as fast and within half an hour we were feeling pretty good and wanted to check out some other clubs in the area.

When we left Ocean Beach we decided to grab one of horse carriages to take us to Legian street where a bunch of the clubs from the other night were and with our quick talking German we managed to talk the driver into taking us there for only $4. Our first stop was Paddy’s Nightclub since it was still happy hour where you got 2 for 1 drinks, it was funny though cus we spent most of our time there talking an Indonesian prostitute that was sitting at the table across from us. She was pretty candid about life as a prostitute and told us about her family and her kids, it’s pretty sad that so many woman here prostitute themselves to make a living here but I guess it’s a half decent money wise with all the tourists that come through Bali on a daily basis.

After Paddy’s we bargained a ride on scooters back to Ocean Beach and within an hour we were back on scooters heading over to Bounty Nightclub which was right by Paddy’s. Jordan decided to call it a night at around 2am but Matt and I decided to hit one more club before heading to bed so we ended up at M Bar Go Nightclub as our final stop. By this time Matt had managed to down roughly 15 beers throughout the night and was in anything but good shape haha. Before I knew it he was dancing with probably the drunkest girl in the club which made for some entertaining moments. One thing that was pretty nasty though was when Matt got back from the washroom and told me that he had just thrown up, not even 2 minutes later Matt and the drunk girl (who was from Norway btw) were making out o the dance floor hahaha.

The dance floor at Ocean Beach Club
I couldn’t believe it, probably the sickest thing I’ve seen in a club since the time our American friend in Rome pissed himself and then slept with a girl in a nightclub in Rome.

By 3:30am we were ready to head back to our hotels and decided to meet the next day at 12pm for lunch. Matt jumped on a scooter outside the club but since my hotel was only 5 minutes away I decided to take the short walk home. Somehow in that short distance home I managed to get lost twice and then had the pleasure of running into Jay Lenos Indonesian she male twin again. This time I was prepared and wasn’t taking any crap. I was walking down the alley towards our hotel, there was a guy walking ahead of me about 30 feet when I see something jump out from around a corner and approach him in the same exact way as the lady boy from the previous night that tried to rob me.

Paddy's bar
I quickly yelled out for him to watch out and he managed to sprint away before any harm was done, unfortunately I had to walk past it too in order to get to my hotel. This time when I got within 10 feet of it and it started walking towards me asking if I wanted sucky sucky, I replied with a very blunt “If you come near me I’ll f*cking lose it”. That did the trick as it immediately backed off and left me alone and the security guard from my hotel got a chuckle out of it since he was only about 20 feet away when it happened. Now I don’t want people to think the streets here aren’t safe cus in all honesty I think the streets for the most part are very safe here, I just think that I’ve had really bad luck having run into the same problem two nights in a row!
