One night in Mataram
15.01.2015 - 15.01.2015
We were due to fly from Bali to Lombok and then from Lombok to Sumbawa but the day before the flight the 2nd leg was cancelled by the airline. The reason: none given, nobody knows. Just one of those things that happen in Indonesia. You have to be flexible with travel and everything else here if you're to enjoy your stay. It was probably just as well that it was cancelled as the first leg of the flight ended up being delayed by 3 hours which meant we would have missed the 2nd leg anyway then had to find last minute accomodation in Mataram or perhaps Senggigi.
We were late getting away and that meant arriving after dark.
Lisa went to arrange bus tickets for the next day for the trip from Mataram to Sumbawa. While I waited on the side street outside the hotel I noticed that there were dogs everywhere.
