The beach beckoned, as did quiet roads. Away I cycled, off the beaten track and through the rice plantation landscape to the beach. Tonight I will lie in my hammock, listening to the waves crashing on the shore.

The quiet road was also a bit bumpy. I had my second flat tyre in two days, and so decided to change the whole tyre. Also, as I could barely stop yesterday on the steep hills in the rain, I changed the brake pads too. The whole lot took over an hour, with the whole village watching.

I had my standard downpour at 2 today rather than 4. Time to eat some duku and manggis. ☺

Tomorrow will be a day meandering along the southern Java coast. Yay!

    I expect they don’t see all that many foreigners on bikes!

    • Changing tyres always attracts a crowd.

        our people only stare at foreighners because most of them do not speak English. if they were able to speak English they would ask a lot of questions about foreighners because they are cuorious but our people always help foreigners even most of them don’t speak English.

      • Ya. Betul. Saya belajar behasa Indonesia 3 minggu di Jakarta untuk bisa berbicara dengan orang orang. Saya bisa mengetakan sedikit untuk perjalanan sepeda saya. 🙂
