ocean. As for those who were not up for a swim, lounging in a hotel or resort along the beach was the perfect option. Morning seemed to end rather quickly and it was time for lunch. I continued to Ngrenehan Beach where fishermen unloaded their freshly caught fish from their trip at dawn. The drive from Nglambor to Ngrenehan took me through more hills and small towns. It was not long before the scent of sea returned to the air. Ngrenehan Beach is shaped like a horseshoe with one of its ends resembling a crocodile head. During rainy season, the horseshoe-shaped part is lush and green but during summer it is quite rocky. Fishing boats lined up neatly in a row. Children run to the water every time they saw a boat approaching, as if they were welcoming their fathers, uncles, brothers or neighbors. Meanwhile, the men helped each other to pull their fishing boats to

There are at least three snorkeling establishments here that offer packages which include goggles, fins and underwater photography. On my visit, the water was warm and a guide from one of the snorkeling centers stated that the current was causing the water to be a little bit muddy, which meant that the view underwater may not be clear. Even so, a number of visitors still jumped in and swam in the

The groom-to-be has to perform a martial art technique to ensure the bride’s family that he is capable of protecting his wife and his future family. The groom-to-be is also expected to have a good capability in reading and reciting the Koran to prove he can be a religious leader in the family. But as time passed, not so many men in Jakarta can do Pencak Silat or recite the Koran as good as in the old days.

Call an ambulance by dialing 118, but it is a lot more practical and quicker to hire a taxi. Most hotels have on-call doctors on standby. For “Bali Belly”, Lomotil and Imodium eliminate symptoms, but not gastro-related infections. A fever along with symptoms requires doctor-prescribed antibiotics. Drink as much liquid as possible. Isotonic drinks under various brand names are widely available and are known to replenish body hydration and replace fluids. For discomfort, diarrhea and cramping, drink strong, hot tea; avoid fruits and spicy foods. Some day-biting mosquitoes carry dengue fever, but this is not a problem in tourist areas. Bali is non-malarial and prophylaxis is not required. Mosquito bites, cuts or abrasions easily become infected in the tropics. Treat them immediately. Drink only bottled or boiled water. Peel fruit before eating; avoid raw vegetables except at reputable restaurants. Ice in restaurants is safe. Protect yourself from the intense equatorial sun. Use high SPF sunblock and a hat. AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases are increasing in Indonesia. Local sex workers have multiple partners from around the world. They are not checked for sexually transmitted diseases. Act responsibly and use condoms, available over the counter at pharmacies.
