January 17: Travel Day and Kuta Beach

We met in the lobby at 4:45am to check out and eat our breakfast (bread boxes provided by the hotel) and then we left for the airport to head to Bali.  Our plane stopped in a city on the island of Java, we got off the plane, and 10-15 minutes later boarded that same plane again.  We landed in Bali a little after 10am.  After arriving at our hotel we searched out some food for lunch, which was a lot harder than usual since the hotel restaurant didn't have most of the food we wanted to order.  We ended up deciding to get ready for Kuta Beach and searching out lunch there.

When we were all ready, we headed to Kuta Beach which was pretty close by and we all went to Johnny Rockets for lunch; we were all craving American food.  After lunch we split up; some went to the markets and some went to the beach.  It was a beautiful sunny day and it was nice to have some free time.  People walked away with some good souvenirs and a few even surfed!  We left Kuta Beach around 7pm and many of us hung out at the pool once we were back at the hotel.
