Well, as my grampa, whom I never met, used to say, "Never count your chickens before they're hatched." Or at least I suspect he used to say so. And this appears to be the byword as far as rentals in Bali are concerned. In other words, we may not have found a house afterall. First the owner said Yeah, it's for rent, and you can move in by the end of February. Then she called back the next day and said it was for rent but also for sale, and wouldn't we like to buy it? (Fat chance). At that time she said that we could tour the house on Saturday. However, the next day she called and said the house could not be toured until the 16th. Now WTF is going on? It's really so typical. Perhaps they found out somehow that I am a bule, and so decided the house was for sale. Who knows. But the long and short is that we are still up in the air and still looking. Damn!
