Friday 9th March 2012 – Cirebon


Decided to stay another night in Cirebon, my stomach felt a bit dodgy, not really bad, but thought it’s a nice little hotel with nice staff I’ll stay another night. Think I’ve got enough time in hand to get to Bali and catch my flight!

Went out for a walk this morning and got mobbed by a load of school children all wanting there photo taken with me! You’d think they’d never seen a white man before! There all so nice and polite. News travels fast, on the same walk people were gesturing me as to where my bike was even though I’d never seen them before I don’t think, or maybe they saw me cycle in yesterday, still impressed they recognised me.

Days that I’m not cycling and I decide to stay somewhere are always more appealing before the event than the actual event itself. I enjoy the not having to get up, load the bike up and rush off, I know I don’t have to rush off but once I’m up and loaded I just want to go. But after the initial lazy breakfast, doing a few emails and bits and pieces for my trip, I’ve usually had enough after a couple of hours and wish I’d not stayed, especially as I don’t like doing the tourist thing on my own!

Don’t like to admit it but, I had a real craving for western style food, McDonalds for lunch then KFC tonight!
