The Clips and Trips blog was put together in preparation for our leaving the U.S. on an indefinite world travel adventure which started around August of 2009 and returned us home in December of 2012. If you want to see where it all began, read our mission statement from before we left.

Seafood in Kuta, Bali, Indonesia
October 9, 2009
The food in Kuta has been a great experience. It's not like Thailand in terms of street food. Street food in Indonesia seems a thing to be avoided. So, we eat mostly at restaurants. It costs more than Thai street food, but the food is cheap and really good. There are tons to choose from on our street. They are mostly open air restaurants serving both western and Indonesian food.
Our first full day in Bali, Eric and I ordered a fish kebab and two small garlic crabs for $7.00. The garlic crabs were really good, but it involved a lot of intensive peeling.
We also had a fried snapper, with french fries, and veggies for a whole $3.50. While chowing down on our snapper, a retired British couple sat with us, ordered the snapper, and talked about how much they love eating cheap snapper in Bali. So, we were in good company.
A lot of the restaurants show American movies on a projector screen at night. You wouldn't think that a bunch of tourists would want to all sit around a screen and watch tv. But after surfing and playing in the ocean, a nice cool beer and a movie is perfect. Eric and I watched the Bourne Ultimatam and Dumb and Dumber.
