The slow life again. I think modern life is so busy and fast-paced that we are too easily distracted from appreciating the simple things in life. It’s 2.39pm and after a pleasantly cold shower, I have just settled myself onto a mattress that lies on the wooden floor of a jungle hut near Balian Beach. The property is decorated with miscellaneous creative artworks, like flowers in the dirt created by buried beer bottles. I can be pleased with myself that the day went very smoothly. It’s hot, but not as hot as earlier in the year. I had no issues with the bike, but my body has lost its fitness. I will have to take care and ease myself back into my old routine (hence pulling up early in the afternoon today).
