Went over to Koeta Beach Hotel this AM and got a bike for 3f a week. A bright yellow job. Had a couple of cokes and read Lifes. Place run by Californian named Bob Koke. Nasi-goring best yet – even with raisins – supposed to be best in Indies and I can believe it.

Low and I then pedaled to Den Pasar and saw gang in Bali Hotel. Went to curio shops and museum (not too good).

Carvings excellent, if gaudy and expensive. Shopkeepers can be jewed (sorry!) down about two-thirds in most cases.
