           day 7

.....my body feels like I have been run-over by one of bali's "yellow trucks"......or like a 6'-8' swell has been running for 5 days......of course neither is the case.....just putting in the hours, and catching lots of waves.....with nothing to do but relax and surf.....the surfing part, has the muscles sore, and the body fatigued.......I shut the alarm off before going to bed, and to battle the mosquito inside my mosquito net syndrome I suffered the night before, with the buzzing my ear, I put the fan on setting 2  and spent the evening relatively "mosquito-free", although I was a bit colder then usual, but I managed to sleep alright, with only a few fly-bys to my ears.....the mosquito battle continues, from the moment you enter indonesia until the moment you leave, and once you get out of bali the creature/critter factor increases.....they get bigger, they make louder noises, they creep & crawl into your personal space and bite you......and it increases 10-fold once you get near the jungles......if you happen to stay in the jungle, then it gets really interesting.......snakes/bugs/spiders/crabs/monkeys/wasps/no-see-ums/bees/unidentified flying creatures/eyes peering at you from the darkness/spider eyes glimmering like diamonds, from the flash-light beam-----> the jungle is alive.......like a lot of places I have visited in indo, the jungle comes right down to the beach.......so we went to eat at our local.....Indra(the local guy who is from lombok, that lives here) had some pics he had just shot of glenn from the morning......he had a sick barrel sequence.......I'll post them once glenn gets them.....fuck I missed out, again......Glenn had the day off yesterday, so he was rested and ready and on it at dawn, first in the water(and I thought he was still sleeping).....so after breakfast, we went off to Maluk to get on the internet, post a couple blog posts, and a few photo posts on facebook.......I got my USB modem/dongle thingy sorted so hopefully I will not fall behind on my posts......the song of the day might not be included as the MP3 files take awhile to upload.....so we'll just have to see............todays photo is of me, trying to figure out how to get under the lip and into the barrel.......I managed to make the late drop, keeping my eyes on the lip......at this point it could go either way......lucky for me I tucked in and made it......the alternative might have been stitches........below..................low tide on a sumbawan shore.......below..............young AJ doing a traditional balinese dance at the schools holiday show........below..............traffic-light, bali........below..................jim and I cutting through the cow field to get to our "not-so-secret" right-hander during a wet-season in the past......and finally mr Fanning gets an interference call on this wave during the pipe masters contest....he burned JJF.......
