It seems at present quite certain that we will soon move to one or the other of two houses. Certainty, however, is most certainly a matter of general uncertainty on the island of Bali.
The first of these two abodes is one we had looked at from the outset of our search. Located in Biaung, 15 minutes north of Sanur, it is larger than our present home and also has a yard and patios. This goes for 2000 USD a year (as compared to the 4000 we would be paying otherwise). The catch on this one is that the landlord’s daughter may or may not decide to move to Bali from Java. This we will know (as is said anyway) by the end of this month.
The second house is also located in Biaung, actually on the same street, and it is smaller, with only one bathroom, but goes for 1500 a year. The catch here is that the man who is living in the house doesn’t want to move, nor does he want to pay rent. He has been told (as is said) that he must vacate by June 1st.
So there you have it.
The beat goes on.
