day 2

Second day, we visited this downtown district in Bali called Kuta. There was a shuttle bus provided by the hotel, so we took it to Kuta, after eating breakfast.

The Ritz-Carlton and the Inter-Continental located there. Kuta is located to the north of Jimbaran, and it was about a 20 min. ride from the hotel. For your information, Kuta is the place where the bombing occured 2 years ago. Therefore, many shops in the area was out of business. But Kuta was gradually rebuilding it's prosperity as a shopping district and a surfing zone.

We walked around the district, and shopped around in the morning, buying some souvenirs. We also went in a Balinese supermarket, and bought some spices and the famous Toraja coffee there. There were a lot of barkers there, but they were not too offensive, and it seemed safe enough. Our hotel was mostly dominated by Japanese customers, which was the only complaint of this trip, but in Kuta, we sighted many Australians and New Zealanders along with the Japanese tourists. We had lunch at a Starbucks in
