To begin on a joyous note:- Every morning since the last Hash Trash, the Goshawk has visited the garden, this morning (Nov 22) earlier than usual at 07.30, and I was well aware of its presence. Early to bed, early to rise …. Yes, COMING ROUND THE MOUNTAIN & RINGTAIL pushed me into PUTU GRAB’s mobile Ubud bound, where retired hurt at 20.00 – pathetic really. What the fuck …. BUS PERAMA had deposited me on the big bypass bend anap to run site at Mertha Sari. Paying little attention to TITTIES & EL – whatever happened to the UMBRELLA BAR? – I trundled along to corner of DANAU POSE & ON ON BAR, where spanking white limo of PAIN & PLEASURE squealed to a halt and offered me ride to the beach. Well thankee kindly. Turning into PENGEMBAK, whom should we espy but HARELIP, SHAT ON & TOILET TRASHER behaving oddly as only HARES do, but instead of tearing them to shreds as HOUNDS do, we carried on regardless.
Mertha Sari ain’t what it used to be. Nothing here at all. Nothing beyond Tanjung Sari, apart from coral temple and splendid White Oaks (Suar) and Complex Angkatan Laut tucked away in the bushes nearby. No buildings, no roads, no nuffink, We used to ride around here on Renata’s Arabs – she was Sigey Beil’s Housekeeper at the old Bali Beach. Does anyone else remember? Boring. Then came the Hyatt and Jl Danau Poso and …. What the devil is going on here? Building a new port I was told. Interminable jetty to which I was denied access: beach games area and sandbags still in evidence, but what are those masses of black metallic tarantulas doing? No one could tell me. Began to feel dizzy …. And the run? Bit of mangrove but the tide was in, then – horrors – the pack was led across the bypass road. There is a culvert near the junction of Danau Tempe; I once laid a trail through it: Better be nibbled by a shit-caked rat or cockroach than squashed flat by Benzin Truk, eh? Why no SCREAMING LORD & LADY? Trail went by their front door Good to see GAYLICK back in the running – been seven months in LOCK DOWN DOWN UNDER without a beer – really? Next week back to the hills with MOUNT & GROAN at BRES SELA.
Enuff sweaty slogs in the nether regions.
