Bike-Ride to Australia 4th-March-2012

Bike-Ride to Australia Sunday 4th-March-2012. In Bandar Lampung. I decided that I would stop another night. I was still feeling a bit tired after the past couple of days. Plus, my hands are starting to develop blisters from sunburn again! And besides, it’s always good to have the internet.

I spent all morning on the laptop, which totally kept my hands out of the sun. There’s not even a window in my room! Well, there is, but it’s behind a giant advertising board! My room is completely black unless I put a light on!

After finishing up on the laptop, I went out for lunch. While out, I found a couple of out-door type shops, which really surprised me. They even sold tents. I bought myself some fingerless gloves in one of the shops. I can’t believe I’m contemplating wearing gloves in 30° heat! But, I’ve got to try and do something to protect my hands from the sun.

Typical Sunday

I spent the afternoon in the hotel bar. It’s just like a Sunday at home! But they soon ran out of beer again! I’d told them last night that they needed to get more than eight cans in at a time. They’re obviously not used to drinkers! With the hotel dry, I went out for a walk to find my own beer.

I found a small shopping mall with a supermarket selling beer on my walk. Mission accomplished! There was a big hall at the mall, with a lot of noise coming out, which spiked my interest. So I went to investigate! It was a track with remote-controlled cars racing around. There were loads of them, and they went at a fair rate of knots! It was very popular, and I could see why I found it pretty interesting myself.
