129 Saying Goodbye to New Friends

Dutch Friends, Chris & Kate

Dutch Friends, Chris & Kate

The beauty of our lifestyle is that everyday we explore new places, meet new people. The bad news, almost every day we say goodbye to new friends.

We met Kate & Chris at the pool when we arrived. They’re from Holland spending 3 months here. Just relaxing, sunning and every few days they indulge in a massage. Chris urged us to try it. I felt like my shoulders are in too much pain for that kind of kneading and bending. We loved sitting, sipping a beer in the mid day heat and eating our meals together, talking about life. Chris has ideas that will clean the plastic and trash from Bali’s beaches. He’s approached local government but found that to be disappointing. The first thing the local leader wanted to know was, “What’s in it for me?” Isn’t that the way life is? Isn’t that the way most government operates? Including ours back home?
