So on Sunday afternoon, we decided to take a cab to Sanur beach. Sanur has always been one of my favorite beaches in Bali, not too crowded, light golden sand are abundant, and plenty tasty, affordable foods around it.
After having lunch, we bought a kite and tried to fly it right away. (In July 2012, one medium-sized kite in the shape of a bird costs about IDR 10,000 - 25,000, depending on your bargaining skill) First, we tried tying a piece of string to it, then... the kite sorta fall gracelessly towards the sand. We looked at each other and shrugged. We tried again. Again and again, the kite decided that the sand was to be its favorite destination, instead of the sky.
My partner and I had a wonderful time playing kite. True, we're grown-ups and all but so what? And after a while, you can just tie the string to a rock or something and watch it soaring in the sky.
We bought some cans of drinks and sipped some juice while playing the kite. I hope one day we'll be able to play a kite in Bali, again! Maybe in different beaches, with our kids? We shall see!
